America’s Got Talent act goes horribly wrong female contestant accidentally fires a flaming arrow into her fiancé’s throat as he swallows a sword.
An act on America’s Got Talent turned into disaster, when one contestant had a flaming arrow fired into his neck. Canadian stunt man Ryan Stock was ready to impress the audience and judges, as he fed a pole with a bullseye attached down his throat. His raven haired performance partner and fiancée Amberlynn Walker, then prepared the arrow which had been set alight and fired. Unfortunately for Stock, his partner’s aim was less than perfect and instead of hitting the bulls eye, it hit his throat. As a chintzy soundtrack played in the background, Stock grappled with his neck and tried to bat away the fiery needle.
Pointing out he was clearly in pain, he insisted he needed to go straight to an EMT, failing to hide his frustration when Ryan tried to brush it off, and deny needing help. The show which is filmed live continued to air, as Cannon made sure Stock was okay while the judges looked on in horror. As they cut for an ad break, Nick pointed out it was ‘live television and anything can happen,’ clarifying later that the daredevil had been checked out, and appears to be OK so we are happy about that.
Ironically before they hit the stage the act, who Simon previously called a human horror movie, had joked about him possibly dying onstage, with Amber Lynn asking him: ‘Promise you won’t be mad at me if I kill you? Sure. I can promise that,’ he told her, them both smiling. They also laughed about how they haven’t killed each other yet, and that it was going to be probably one of the most dangerous things, we’ve ever done. If something happens with her I will not be able to live with myself, her partner Andre. But judge Simon Cowell seemed to be charmed by the pair, and told Billboard the act could do well in Vegas.
He explained: They like all that stuff in Vegas. It’s like watching a horror movie. You kind of don’t like it, but you do like it and you want to see more of it. Stock himself later tweeted: ‘We had a serious mishap tonight outage live on nbc agt. A very unfortunate mechanical failure, but I am very fortunate to walk away from it.’
