America’s Got Talent: Extreme Hospitalized After Escape Stunt Goes Wrong

A contestant for NBC’s new show “America’s Got Talent: Extreme” was airlifted to hospital after his act went awry during rehearsals at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga. On Thursday.

Escape artist Jonathan Goodwin, who reached the semi-finals on last year’s regular “America’s Got Talent”, reportedly fell dozens of feet to the ground after being crushed between two cars in the air , according to several media.

The Welsh-born performer, 41, was “responsive” and “immediately taken to hospital where he continues to receive medical treatment,” a spokesperson for “AGT: Extreme” said in a statement to people magazine.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family as we await further updates on his condition,” the representative added.

Jonathan Goodwin reached the semi-final of “America’s Got Talent” in 2020.

NBC has promoted “AGT: Extreme,” an eight-part spin-off of its hit series “AGT,” as a showcase of “the most outrageous, unique and mind-boggling acts of enormous scale and magnitude that simply cannot be confined to a theater stage.

Production on the show, which is scheduled to air in 2022, was suspended on Friday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
