  • A stuntman on "America's Got Talent" was injured after a rehearsal performance went horribly wrong.

  • Jonathan Goodwin was crushed between two cars that caught fire, all while being suspended 70 feet in the air, TMZ said.

  • He is currently hospitalized, though his condition is unknown.

A stuntman on "America's Got Talent: Extreme" suffered injuries after a stunt he performed during a rehersal went wrong, a show spokesperson confirmed to Insider.

Jonathan Goodwin was suspended 70 feet in the air in a straitjacket between two cars that were also airborne and swinging back and forth, TMZ reported.

He was supposed to free himself and land on an air mattress while avoiding being hit by the swinging cars, according to TMZ.

Instead, the cars reportedly crashed into each other, bursting into flames and crushing Goodwin. Goodwin then fell to the ground, TMZ reported.

A spokesperson for "America's Got Talent" told Insider that Goodwin was "responsive" following the accident and was "immediately taken to the hospital where he is continuing to receive medical care."

His condition is unknown.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family as we await further updates on his condition," the show spokesperson said.
