The Walking Dead is undoubtedly one of the most popular television series today. Unfortunately, the franchise is in the news, not because of its wild popularity, but because of a death that occurred on set.
According to reports, a stuntman was on a balcony on the set of the show at Raleigh Studios in Georgia when he fell more than 20 feet to the ground. The impact caused the stuntman to sustain a serious head injury. He was transported to a local hospital and placed on life support. His family eventually made the decision to remove their loved one from support and allow him to pass peacefully.
The stuntman is credited for his work on various television programs and movies on the big screen. He performed work on The Fate of the Furious and 24: Legacy and Claws. His death is the first on a set since 2014. Members of the television program expressed their condolences across social media.
OSHA has launched an investigation into the accident. The agency has not provided any further information to the public and it is not known how long the investigation is expected to take. The official cause of death was listed as accidental due to blunt-force trauma.
