The “America’s Got Talent” spin-off “AGT: Extreme” has been put on hold after a devastating accident happened on the set Friday.
Stunt performer Jonathon Goodwin was hospitalized after reportedly landing on his head and suffering a “neurological injury” that is said to have him “close to death.”
The stunt was said to have Goodwin in a straight jacket from which he was to free himself and land on an air mattress below, while two cars swung back-and-forth. Apparently, something went wrong, and the two cars collided, “sandwiched” him, and there was an explosion.
A YouTuber has posted clips of the stunt (as well as their own commentary) in the video below.
As far as we have read the stuntman is suffering from a neurological injury.
