    Season 8 shooting halted after serious injury of stuntman

    http://deadline.com/2017/07/walking-...ll-1202128054/

    Stuntman John Bernecker reportedly is on life support a day after suffering massive head injuries in a fall on the set of The Walking Dead in Atlanta. A source who is at Atlanta Medical Center told Deadline that Bernecker is brain dead and on life-support while his family makes arrangements.

    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.
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Reading down in the comments it appears that he passed away sometime yesterday.
