NEW YORK, NY (NBC) - A flaming arrow stunt went wrong on America's Got Talent on Tuesday night.
As it unfolded on live network television the judges were clearly stunned, unaware if performer Ryan Stock was seriously injured.
Host Nick Cannon eventually stepped in to end the segment as the performer tried to compose himself.
Luckily he's going to be OK.
"The trick went wrong!" Stock said. "It got very scary very fast! That's the nature of live television and dangerous stunts. I got really lucky. I walked away -- minor injury -- didn't go through my neck. I got lucky."
"Amber had a laser sight that was directly on target, right in the middle, and it looked like the back of an arrow that was being fired broke and sent the arrow off the string and sideways," Stock said. "It probably is the reason it didn't go through my neck.
"Ohhhhh my God, you know that scariest thing is how far people are willing to push it to possibly win this show. and I think we saw that line tonight when a flaming arrow hit a man in the neck," AGT judge Howie Mandel said. "and I was just...I'm still shaking on the inside. I don't want to see anybody get hurt."
The act called Ryan Stock and Amberlynn is one of 12 competing for a slot in the next round of America's Got Talent.
