Stuntman dies after 8m plunge
A STUNTMAN has died after falling from an 8m-high balcony onto concrete while filming scenes for The Walking Dead. John Bernecker, 33, had also done stunt work in Black Panther, Logan, Get Out and The Fate of the Furious. Mr Bernecker lost his footing while rehearsing a fight scene that was to end with a routine fall from a balcony. “We are saddened to report John, a talented stuntman for us, suffered serious injuries from a tragic accident on set,” a spokesman for production company AMC said. He was surrounded by family when life support was turned off.
