'AGT: Extreme' Leaked 911 Call Details Jonathan Goodwin Horrifying Near-Death Experience
A leaked 911 call revealed the horrific experience of a stuntman on "America's Got Talent: Extreme."
Ahead of the show proper, contestants of "AGT: Extreme" underwent rehearsals on Thursday evening. However, one of the competitors suffered from dreaded injuries while performing his act.
Multiple news outlets confirmed that the contestant, Jonathan Goodwin, was suspended 70 feet while in a straightjacket. Two cars were also suspended next two him while swinging back and forth. The plan was to free himself from the suspender before falling onto a mattress below him. However, the two cars crashed together and smashed him before he fell.
The collision caused a massive explosion on set.
A 911 call from the set has recorded the tragic accident. As published by The Sun, a woman described Goodwin's situation as "agonal and posturing." The terms are being used for patients who are near death.
The caller then told the dispatch they needed a helicopter STAT and rescue.
What was worse is that the contestant missed the mattress he was supposed to land on, hitting his head on the ground and sustaining neurological injury.
CPR was not performed at the time of the call since Goodwin still had his pulse. He also remained responsive when he was airlifted. The Henry County Sheriff's Department in Georgia confirmed the development.
