An 'AGT' stunt with a flaming arrow goes wrong on live TV, but the contestant luckily 'walks away from it'

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Hearts may have skipped a beat with the Tuesday episode (Wednesday, August 3 in Manila) of America’s Got Talent (AGT) when an act went horribly wrong – on live TV!

In his quarterfinals act, AGT contestant and stunt man Ryan Stock put a target in his mouth, as his partner and fiancée Amber Lynn Walker tried to shoot it with a flaming arrow.

But she missed, and as the episode was airing live, the arrow accidentally hit Ryan’s neck.

See the shocking moment in a video from Inside Edition. 


An unedited version may also be found via a recording from YouTube user London to Paris.


He quickly removed the target from his mouth and brushed his neck quickly, as a horrified panel of judges – Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Simon Cowell – and the audience watched on.

Host Nick Cannon immediately asked him, “Is everything okay? Are you okay?” to which Ryan responds, “I’m okay, I’m okay.”

A clip posted on YouTube cuts off right after the shocking portion.


After the episode, Ryan tweeted, “We had a serious mishap tonight outage live on [AGT]. A very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it.”


The official AGT Twitter also tweeted its own reaction to the scary incident: “You NEVER know what will happen when #AGT is live.”
