Survivor dies even if you save him from struggle

On the Arterial level on The Distance I just had a guy go into struggle against a spiked walker. I saved him by killing the walker while it still said he had 2 turns left, but he showed up dead along with that walker.

Prior to the attack that put my guy into struggle his health was green. So I know it was struggle and not the walker chewing on his corpse on the ground.

He was not equipped with the wrestler trait.

    @justinc222 please see this regarding Spiked Walker

    What are Spiked Walkers?
    These walkers are something your survivors have never faced before, and they’re dangerous!

    Spiked walkers are big walkers with spikes pushed through their bodies. They have high health and are stun resistant.

    Attacks by spiked walkers cause your survivor to bleed. If your survivor enters a struggle with a spiked walker, they die immediately.

    Most likely what you saw was your survivor dying and the 2 turns is due to the walkers feeding on your survivor.

    Spikes are bugged I'm afraid, according to their walker description(in game help) you can't struggle with a Spike, they kill you instantly.
