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.
