Simon Cowell’s new stunt show stalled as daredevil reportedly crushed by two cars
Production on Simon Cowell’s new talent show America’s Got Talent: Extreme has paused after a contestant suffered a terrifying accident.
Jonathan Goodwin was airlifted to hospital after he was reportedly crushed between two cars in a daredevil stunt that went wrong on Thursday.
An AGT spokeswoman told Deadline, “During a rehearsal an accident occurred in which escape artist Jonathan Goodwin was injured while performing his act. He was responsive and was immediately taken to the hospital where he is continuing to receive medical care. Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family as we await further updates on his condition.”
Producers of the show, hosted by Terry Crews, and featuring Nikki Bella and Travis Pastrana as judges alongside Cowell, have opted to shut down filming for Friday, while health and safety officials investigate the accident.
