The stuntman from the Avengers movie and his three children sadly died in a car accident that took place on Halloween. The devastating incident which transpired in Georgia was a collision between their car and a truck.

41-year-old Taraja Ramsess and his children, 13-year-old Sundari, 10-year-old Kisasi, and newborn Fugibo tragically died on October 31 following this accident. This horrifying event was reported by the British station LBC. Ramsess had worked on Marvel's box-office hits "Avengers" and "Black Panther".

Based on the reports available, the stuntman and his two daughters unfortunately died immediately at the accident scene. Kisasi, at the time of the mishap 10 years old, was rushed to the hospital and put on life support. Sadly, a few days later he also succumbed to his injuries, according to reports from the family. Another 3-year-old girl was critically injured and was admitted to the hospital. She is currently in serious but stable condition.

The heart-breaking accident has shaken many. Ramsess's mother shared her grief on Instagram, stating, "Everyone who knew him is aware of how exceptional Taraja was. He possessed a remarkable ability to love, valuing his children above anything else. He had a passion for martial arts, motorcycles, and everything related to movies."

Prominent director and screenwriter Ava DuVernay expressed her own sentiments about the tragically departed stuntman, stating: "Taraja was always the first to say 'yes'. He would agree to jump into difficult scenes, portraying a tough guy with a gun, without hesitation. May God bless his soul, cherish his memory, comfort his loved ones, and all his companions he leaves behind."

In the aftermath of the deaths of the stuntman and his children, a fundraiser has been initiated. As reported by LBC, it has collected over $80k in aid for the Ramsess family so far.
