Even though “America’s Got Talent” has been crazy this year, with an array of death-defying stunts being performed on stage, fortunately, none of them have gone wrong… until now.
In the second Quarter Final of this season, a Canadian stuntman, Ryan Stock, who has previously demonstrated stunts such as swallowing sharp swords, almost kissing a chainsaw, putting various items in his nose as well as putting out fires by his tongue, really messed up his AGT Quarter Final act.
With a perfect start, where both he and his assistant-cum-fiancé appeared to have walked in their house from a black and white movie, they did not seem fazed at all.

After announcing to the audience that they would be stepping up their daring stunts this act, but only after following a regime of warm ups, they began their act.
Everything went smoothly to a point. Ryan swallowed a curvy sword and rotated his neck with the sword still inside his throat. Next, he licked an arrow before swallowing it too. AmberLynn, his stagehand, then pulled the arrow out of his mouth and proceeded towards a flight of stairs, along with a crossbow.
Meanwhile, Ryan had already removed the head of a lamp and swallowed its rod, letting the audience see that a bull’s eye had been painted at the bottom of the lamp, which then rested on his lips.
AmberLynn, standing at a considerable height, took aim with an arrow that had been lit on fire and that is where things got ugly.

The arrow missed its intended target by half an inch, reports USA Today, and went straight for Ryan’s neck it appeared. However, thankfully, it only caught portion of his shirt, as Ryan pointed out later in the episode.
The audience and the judges were equally horrified and Simon Cowell even cut Heidi Klum’s remarks short by saying: “Why are we judging this act? Amber just shot Ryan and he needs to go to a hospital now! I’m being serious.”
Ryan Stock later tweeted that he had a “very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it”, to assure his fans that he is okay,reports PEOPLE.
Watch what could have been a really dangerous mistake by Ryan and his fiancé on “America’s Got Talent” 2016.
