A crew member on the set of the Marvel Studios’ Wonder Man has tragically died in a freak accident. 

The rigger, who has not been identified, fell to their death on Tuesday at CBS Radford Studios in Los Angeles, California. 

The show, which depicts a stuntman-turned-superhero, was reportedly not filming at the time of the accident, but workers were on the set.

In a statement, Marvel Studios said: ‘Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family and friends, and our support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this accident.’

Paramedics raced to the scene after reports of an accident, and arrived at sound stage 3 to find a middle-aged man, reports TMZ.

The outlet said that he was pronounced dead at the scene. 

It is unclear how the freak death could affect shooting on the new Marvel show, which was set to begin production next month after the shoot was delayed by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, reports Deadline. 

Sources added to TMZ that while no foul play is suspected, the accident quickly sparked a federal probe. 

Although Alec Baldwin’s fatal ‘Rust’ set shooting is the most notable recent example, at least 47 deaths have occurred on US film sets since 1990, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

The figures also include 180 hospitalizations in over 250 overall production set accidents.
