ATLANTA (AP) — A film company faces a citation and fine after a stuntman for "The Walking Dead" fell to his death last year during filming on the hit show's Georgia set, federal authorities said Friday. John Bernecker, 33, died July 12 from injuries suffered in a fall on the set in Senoia, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) south of Atlanta, Coweta County coroner Richard Hawk said at the time. The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration said in a news release that it issued a "serious citation" to Stalwart Films LLC. The agency said it proposed a fine of $12,675, the maximum allowable fine for a single serious violation, for "failure to provide adequate protection from fall hazards."
