Serious On-Set Injury Halts Walking Dead Season 8 Production

AMC has suspended production of its hit show The Walking Dead after stuntman John Bernecker was injured seriously during a rehearsal this week. According to Deadline, Bernecker suffered a “serious head injury” after he fell 30 feet onto a concrete floor.

He was transported to a local medical center in Atlanta and is in the intensive care unit. A source told Deadline that the stuntman is “brain dead and on life-support while his family makes arrangements.”

From Deadline’s report: “Sources say Bernecker and an actor were rehearsing a fight scene that was supposed to end with a routine fall from a balcony, but he lost his footing and fell 30 feet to a concrete floor.”

Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd posted a message of support for Bernecker on Twitter, saying, “We are all praying for him, his family, friends, and colleagues.”

Bernecker also did stuntwork for The Fate of the Furious, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and Looper, among other movies.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
