The incident took place near Blue Cloud Movie Ranch in Santa Clarita, to the north-east of Los Angeles, on Saturday afternoon.

Melnick was transported to a hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

A spokesperson for the actor told Variety Sunday that Melnick is doing fine and recovering at home, and stressed that the shoot the actor was doing was not in any way associated with SEAL Team. 

Ironically, last week, he had posted video to Instagram in which he’s seen successfully performing the fast-roping stunt carrying a dog.
