TMZ is reporting that a “Wipeout” contestant has died after competing on the show.
The show, hosted by John Cena, is currently in production. TMZ noted that the male contestant needed medical attention after completing the course and was treated on-site until paramedics arrived. The contestant was said to be experiencing chest pain after completing the course.
TMZ sources say the contestant suffered cardiac arrest just before noon on Wednesday.
The show is getting rebooted by TBS after a long run on ABC. “We are devastated to have learned of his passing and our deepest sympathy goes out to the family,” TBS said via a statement.
It’s unclear how this will affect future episodes of the show.
