Only a few weeks ago, Russia’s “sexiest motorcyclist” Olga Pronina died in a horrifying bike crash.
Last month, a stuntman was killed in Atlanta on the set of The Walking Dead after he fell from a balcony.
And this isn’t the first time someone has died on a movie set in a stunt gone horribly wrong.
Vic Morrow was famously decapitated and killed on the set of The Twilight Zone in 1982 after being struck by a helicopter’s rotor, and Jason Lee, son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee died shooting The Crow in 1994, when he was accidentally shot in the head.
