    Said he was working with Dwight, but I read it to be Dwight was there as well, maybe pushing him off the side...or maybe trying to save him in the episode. Still sucks though.

    I'm thinking, after reading more, that he wasn't subbing for AA but for another character with whom AA is fighting.

    From: https://heavy.com/entertainment/2017...-walking-dead/
    Bernecker suffered his fatal injury during production on AMC’s The Walking Dead (2010-). According to NY Daily News, he fell 22 feet onto a concrete floor while rehearsing a fight scene with one of the show’s actors, Austin Amelio, and was subsequently rushed to the Atlanta Medical Center. He was pronounced brain-dead on July 12th, and taken off of a ventilator the following day. The official cause of death was the blunt force trauma that resulted from the fall.


    Another report says:


    Shortly before he fell 22 feet from a balcony onto a concrete floor in a TV-show stunt gone wrong, stuntman John Bernecker told a fellow Walking Dead actor that he had done “a few” high fall stunts before, but “never this high up,” according to a Coweta County, Georgia Sheriff's report obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. The actor, Austin Amelio, who was the only other person on the balcony, also stated that Bernecker “seemed a little nervous,” according to the report, which was filed by deputy J.P. Traylor.

    Wow makes it even more surreal that Austin Amelio was the last person the guy talked to not to mention was the only other person on the balcony with him and now the girlfriend is blaming him? Give me a fucking break.

    This better not affect his role on the show

    The girlfriend is probably going to sue, and AMC will prob settle with her, and there goes all the Shiva CGI money.

    Well, who knows. She has to have legal standing to sue, and I don't know that she has it. Also, stunt work is risky business. There's probably all kinds of insurance behind this, and if the fault is his I'm not seeing a winning lawsuit. I have no idea, though, having not been there and being completely clueless about the circumstances surrounding the mishap.

    I feel bad for AA. I'm sure he was traumatized by watching him fall to his death and maybe even felt a bit guilty already for some reason.

    Well, it was an accident. No one there that day planned for this to happen.

    The cast of the show have modified their appearance at SDCC.
    I guarantee it's because of this terrible accident.

    Indeed.

    It's bad enough and then the wife is coming out and essentially blaming him for it.
