Four months after a near-fatal accident on the set of AGT: Extreme, stunt artist Jonathan Goodwin is back home. The stunt artist was rushed to the hospital after he was severely injured while rehearsing a stunt for the October 14th show.

At the time, TMZ revealed a video, showing the escape artist suspended in the air by a cable, while wearing a straitjacket. Meanwhile, there was a suspended vehicle on either side of him. When the cars swung towards Goodwin, he was released and was meant to fall beneath the cars. However, as could be seen from the footage, he ended up getting sandwiched between the vehicles, followed by a terrifying, fiery blast.

  1. I really admire Jonathan Goodwin. He is absolutely right about love is the best medicine in the world. Like Jonathan, I had a life changing accident 10 years ago and am quadriplegic. My partner has stuck with me thruough thick and thin (mostly thick!). Amanda Abbingdon can also be congratulated as so many partners are expected to do the right thing and are often not praised enough as they to have a life changing situation to deal with. Kimberley x
