A man has accidentally been shot in the neck with a burning arrow during a failed stunt live on air.
Canadian stunt man Ryan Stock and his fiance Amber Lynn were nearly at the end of their performance in the quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent when their last trick went horribly wrong.
Instead of shooting a flaming arrow from a crossbow at the target, Mr Stocks co-performer and fiance Ms Lynn missed, striking him in the neck.

Judges Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel and Mel B were left watching on in horror as the reality show’s host raced to Mr Stocks aid.
Miraculously, Mr Stock escaped unharmed and later took to Twitter explaining that it was a “very unfortunate mechanical failure”.
We had a serious mishap tonight outage live on @nbcagt. A very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it.
