Wipeout Contestant Dies After Completing Course
A contestant on the competition show Wipeout has died after completing one of the obstacle courses. As of right now, there is no word on the contestant’s information.
The contestant required medical attention following his completion of the course on Wednesday and was seen by on-site medical personnel.
He was then taken to the hospital where he later died.
“All the contestants on Wipeout undergo medical examinations before they are cleared to participate. There is an onsite safety team that is comprised of several paramedics, two set medics, a paramedic coordinator and a safety producer. There is a safety team present at all times.”
Wipeout originally aired on ABC from 2008 to 2014. The show announced a reboot this past April on TBS.
We at AEE offer our condolences to the family.
