He fell from a two storey building during the filming of the Fred Rogers biopic.
Police told a news station that the man, who is from the Pittsburgh area, was taking a smoke break on a balcony in between filming scenes when bystanders heard a noise and discovered he had fallen, reported variety.com.
He was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but after arriving his status worsened. Filming has been halted as the police investigated.
The film is inspired by a real-life friendship between Rogers and award-winning journalist Tom Junod (Rhys). In the story, a cynical journalist begrudgingly accepts an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed.
