 A stuntman on AMC's "The Walking Dead" was seriously injured in an accident on the show's set in Georgia.
"We are saddened to report that John Bernecker, a talented stuntman for 'The Walking Dead' and numerous other television shows and films, suffered serious injuries from a tragic accident on set," AMC said in a statement.

THIS ISNT FAIR." (source: aol entertainment)
