On Tuesday night, daredevil team Ryan and AmberLynn performed a routine live on America's Got Talent that started with Ryan Stock swallowing a curved sword and ended with him being shot in the chest with a flaming arrow by his partner.
No, that was not part of the bit—AmberLynn was actually aiming for a target which Stock was holding in his mouth (and esophagus).
Don't worry, he's fine! Well, fine for someone who just got hit with a flaming arrow. To be fair, the arrow doesn't seem like it pierced him, nor did he catch fire—in his words, "It just caught my shirt."
Here's a longer look at the excruciating moment:
Immediately after the misfire, the camera turned to the judges, who looked, in a word, horrified.
One of the judges, Howie Mandel, encouraged Stock to visit the ER but he said he was okay.
He did mention that this was the first time she missed, but no word on if they're going to retire the act or try for another.
