Bernecker suffered blunt force trauma to the head and was flown from the scene to Atlanta Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Hawk said.
A statement from SAG-AFTRA, a union that represents media workers, on Friday said Bernecker was an "accomplished" stuntman and called his death a "tragic and untimely loss".
"We are deeply saddened by this loss and our hearts and prayers are with John's family, friends and colleagues during this extremely hard time", AMC said Friday. This could mean that their respective characters Simon, Jadis, Enid, and Jadis will play a bigger part in the show's upcoming installments.
"We will work with the authorities and closely monitor their investigations into this tragic incident", SAG-AFTRA added.
The AMC network confirmed "John Bernecker's family has decided that he will be removed from life support following organ donation". The 33 year-old man was immediately helicoptered to the hospital in Atlanta.
On Wednesday, July 12, AMC halted production on the new season after Bernecker was seriously injured on set.
"We are deeply saddened by this loss and our hearts and prayers are with John's family, friends and colleagues during this extremely hard time", the network said in a statement. Bernedecker also did stunts in Logan, The Fate Of The Furious, The Hunger Games, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Olympus Has Fallen, Goosebumps, Get Out and Black Panther. Our thoughts and prayers are with the performer and his family.
