Juan Carols Osorio, a rigger for Marvel’s “Wonder Man” movie, died on the movie set at Radford Studios in Studio City, Tuesday at the age of 41.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the worker was pronounced dead on scene, according to Deadline. It was reported that Osorio fell to his death while on the catwalk, an upper-level walkway above the set.

It is not clear if he was working in the catwalk at the time, or if he was moving through the space when the accident occurred. The movie was not filming at the time the incident took place, according to Deadline.

Osario was a native of Temple City. A spokesperson from Marvel spoke out about the tragedy in a statement issued to Deadline.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family and friends, and our support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this accident,” they said.

“Everyone in the IA family is shocked and deeply saddened by this tragic loss. We are working to support our member’s family, and his fellow members and colleagues,” said President Matthew D. Loeb.

Loeb went on to discuss how this tragedy will be handled and investigated.

“Safety on set is our highest priority and we will assist Cal/OSHA in their investigation in any way that we can,” Loeb said, according to Deadline.

He then provided a number of references for any employee who feels they may be working in an unsafe environment to prevent future tragedy.

“If you feel unsafe on set for any reason, members can call the IATSE Safety Hotline at 844-422-9273 or use our safety info app,” Loeb said. (RELATED: Anthony Anderson Says ‘Movie Set Fight Gone Wrong’ Sent Him To ER)
