A stuntman for "The Walking Dead" has died after falling on the Georgia set of the hit television show.

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.
