A contestant on NBC’s new “America’s Received Expertise: Excessive” present was airlifted to hospital after his act went flawed throughout rehearsals on the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia, on Thursday.
Escape artist Jonathan Goodwin, who reached the semi-final of final 12 months’s common “America’s Got Talent” present, reportedly fell dozens of ft to the bottom after being crushed between two automobiles in mid-air, per multiple media outlets.
The Welsh-born performer, 41, was “responsive” and “instantly taken to the hospital the place he’s persevering with to obtain medical care,” a spokesperson for “AGT: Excessive” mentioned in an announcement to People journal.
“Our ideas and prayers exit to him and his household as we await additional updates on his situation,” the consultant added.
NBC has promoted “AGT: Excessive,” an eight-episode spinoff to its extremely profitable “AGT” collection, as a showcase of “the most outrageous, distinctive and jaw-dropping acts of monumental scale and magnitude that merely can’t be confined to a theater stage.”
Manufacturing on the present, which is about to broadcast in 2022, was suspended Friday, reported The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
