EXCLUSIVE: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has launched an investigation into Monday’s accident on the Georgia set of Tales of the Walking Dead, where a crew member was injured when she fell from the top deck of a riverboat, struck a railing on the lower level and fell into the lake at Stone Mountain Park east of Atlanta.
“OSHA initiated an investigation into this incident, and therefore we are unable to share anything further at this time,” a spokesperson for the U.S. Dept. of Labor told Deadline.
The injured woman, who is a member of Atlanta’s IATSE Local 479, recently underwent surgery. So far, neither the production company, the union nor OSHA has provided her identity or an update on her condition.
