America's Got Talent Stunt in Georgia Goes Horribly Wrong


The 40-year-old escape artist, who was sandwiched between two cars after failing to free himself from a straitjacket while suspended in the air, broke "multiple" bones in both legs and suffered cuts and burns "all over his face," according toTMZ, which obtained the police report.

The responding officer told the outlet they were "able to observe the stuntman after the incident and [Goodwin] was conscious and alert," adding that authorities determined he "had good vital signs" following the accident.


If you watch AGT you have seen Jonathan Goodwin whose stunts are intense and very dangerous.

As proof, his horrific car stunt gone wrong was every bit as shocking as it sounded -- which you can now see here in video of the accident that's gut-wrenching to watch.

TMZ posted the moment the stunt got underway Thursday during an 'AGT: Extreme' rehearsal, and the moment Goodwin got sandwiched between two cars ... resulting in a massive fireball to explode, and Goodwin being rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

In the video, you'll see him hanging mid-air in a straight jacket ... with the two vehicles also suspended on each side of him. When they release the cars -- which then start to swing toward Goodwin -- they unhook his harness as well.

He was supposed to fall underneath the cars before they collided, but the timing was off ... and he was crushed between them as they came together He then fell and hit his head but that part is not in the video.

We know he was taken to a trauma unit, but his condition remains unclear at this point.

Here's the 911 call made by a woman -- an on-site medic -- who describes the stunt gone terribly wrong. She says the stuntman,Jonathan Goodwin, is "agonal and posturing" ... a term used for patients close to death, struggling to breathe and making unnatural movements. The Sun exclusively obtained the 911 call placed to Henry county dispatch, in which the caller can be heard calmly asking someone in the background: "Where is the tourniquet?” as she starts to explain how first responders can get to them quickly.

Here are some of Goodwin's previous appearances on AGT:
