Following Bernecker's injury, AMC has temporarily stopped production of the series until otherwise. The Hollywood Reporter has unconfirmed reports that his ventilator was withdrawn sometime overnight between Thursday evening and today.
A spokesperson for AMC paid tribute to John, who was just 33-years-old, in a recent statement. AMC released a statement yesterday explaining Bernecker was rushed to a hospital as production was temporarily halted.
Cast members such as Lauren Cohan asked for people to keep John in their prayers.
John had worked on a number of high-profile productions including The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay and True Detective.

The Cincinnati Bengals , Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions were the only National Football League teams that did not make the list. No Formula 1 teams made the cut, not even Mercedes after winning the F1 title previous year .
The accident is now being investigated by the network and SAG-AFTRA, which represents stunt professionals.
Our thoughts are with John Bernecker's loved ones and The Walking Dead family in the wake of this unthinkable tragedy.
The publication revealed that that his girlfriend, who also works in the stunt department, is by his side.
That being said, "The Walking Dead's" fictional world may be a hazardous place for all its inhabitants, but one might think that the same level of danger wouldn't exist on set.
Last Saturday, a voiceover actor on the "Walking Dead" prequel series "Fear the Walking Dead" was killed during a skydiving accident in Texas, according to the Houston Chronicle.
