Contestant Got Shot In The Throat With A Fiery Arrow On 'America's Got Talent'
A couple of contestants nearly gave "America's Got Talent" viewers a heart attack after performing a stunt gone wrong.
"America's Got Talent" contestants Ryan Stock and AmberLynn Walker had worked on one particular stunt designed specifically for the show.
It involved a bow and flaming arrow, which accidentally hit Stock in the neck. The contestants, who are also engaged, had practiced the stunt countless time before performing it with the world watching.
Ryan Stock, who is also a Canadian stuntman, spoke to People about the mishap, saying,
Despite having practiced the stunt over and over again, Ryan and AmberLynn did admit it was a bit scary at first.
Immediately after the flaming arrow hit Stock in the throat, he made sure he wasn't on fire before proceeding to check on his fiancée.
Ryan took to Facebook to discuss the stunt, explaining,
Luckily, he wasn't severely injured. Had the arrow hit Ryan with more force at a more precise angle, he would have suffered a different outcome.
So, here's how it all went down...
Ryan Stock and fiancée AmberLynn Walker took the stage with a lot in store for the crowd. A ladder, a bow and arrow -- You can just tell this is going to be good!
Ryan started off by announcing that he and Amber had prepared "two brand new, extremely dangerous, never-before-seen stunts." He started off with a sword-swallowing stunt.
This can't end well...
Ryan then followed up with arrow-swallowing. Yikes!
More success! Maybe things will go smoothly after all.
Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for. The grand finale.
All Amber had to do was hit the target sending the flaming arrow down Ryan's throat...
Something tells me this is going to sting. But Ryan looks ready for whatever comes his way.
Here. We. Go.
Noooooo! The arrow missed the target. Ryan and Amber's long-practiced stunt resulted in a minor injury and a viral video they will cherish forever. Ouch!
Sure, it has to be disheartening for Ryan and AmberLynn after all of that hard work of training for this particular stunt.
But the best part about all of this? Ryan says they will "absolutely" be attempting the wild flaming arrow stunt in the near future!
