“America’s Got Talent: Extreme” is known for a lot of death-defying stunts. Nikki Bella also serves as a host on the show. However, it seems a stuntman came close to death on the show’s set recently. Jonathan Goodwin, a daredevil stuntman on the show, suffered a horrific accident on the set.
According to TMZ, Goodwin suffered terrible injuries to such an extent that people on set believed that he passed away. Goodwin was suspended 70 feet in the air in a straitjacket hanging by his feet from a wire. Two cars were suspended on either side of him as they were swinging back and forth.
The stunt required him to free himself from the restraints and then fall on an air mattress, somehow managing to avoid getting crushed by the cars while they were swinging in the air.
Unfortunately, things went awry as the cars smashed together and Goodwin was caught between the two cars. The impact caused the cars to explode, erupting in a gigantic fireball. After that the stuntman fell to the ground, hitting his head in the process.
It was said that Goodwin was unresponsive after the crash, with many believing he lost his life. Goodwin was airlifted to a hospital and rushed into surgery and is currently in a trauma unit. His condition is not known as of yet and we will keep you updated on this ongoing story.
