OS ANGELES, Aug. 3 (UPI) — A contestant on “America’s Got Talent” was shot in the throat with a flaming arrow Tuesday during a shocking stunt gone wrong.
Anticipation for the feat was built up by Ryan who started out their stage show by swallowing a collection of curved swords.
For the finale, Amber situated herself atop a ladder with a crossbow and lined up her shot to hit Ryan’s mouth target. Amber missed her mark however, striking her husband in the throat. As the live audience gasped and Ryan stumbled, he was eventually able to regain his composure and show that he was okay.
Following the accident, Ryan took to Twitter to again reassure fans that he was okay. “We had a serious mishap tonight outage live on @nbcagt. A very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it,” he wrote.
