John Bernecker died after falling head-first onto a concrete floor from 22-feet above and his mother Susan says the network cut corners when it came to safety precautions. Susan is accusing AMC of putting profits ahead of safety and skimping on the show’s stunt budget. She says the network did not provide adequate cushioning beneath the balcony, did not ensure that the scene was rehearsed and did not have an ambulance on scene. “The AMC defendants orchestrated and enforced a pattern of filming and producing The Walking Dead cheaply and ultimately unsafely. As part of this emphasis, the AMC defendants pressured Stalwart Films to maintain unreasonably low budgets and expenses for episodes, including the budget allotted to stunts. Accordingly, the production of The Walking Dead repeatedly cut corners on safety precautions,” the suit reads. In a statement, AMC commented on their safety standards. “Our thoughts and prayers are and have been with John Bernecker, his family, friends and everyone touched by this tragic accident since the moment it occurred. We take the safety of our employees on all of our sets extremely seriously, and meet or exceed industry safety standards. Out of respect for the family, we will have no further comment on this litigation,” the network said......»»
