Since clearing the obstacle course, a Wipeout candidate has passed away.
TMZ records that after finishing the course, a male contestant required medical treatment on Wednesday.
Sources told the US newspaper that the on-site ambulance personnel who called the paramedics attended him.
The contestant was admitted to the hospital and died there afterwards.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that they received a cardiac arrest call shortly before noon on Wednesday, and medics on set had already begun using the contestant’s defibrillator, who after finishing the course developed chest pain.
Two paramedics were confirmed to have been on-site, plus a safety producer and a paramedic coordinator.
Since originally airing on ABC from 2008 to 2014, Wipeout is having a forthcoming revival on TBS.
