The moment a man is shot in the neck with a flaming arrow has been broadcast live during a stunt that went horribly wrong.

Viewers witnessed the horrific accident on America’s Got Talent as Ryan Stock’s girlfriend missed her target, instead hitting the stunt man.

In the footage, Amber Lynn Walker can be seen aiming the fiery arrow at a target being held in Stock’s mouth.

However the arrow flies too low and hits his neck.

Stock was quick to assure all was okay as host, Nick Cannon, checked on him while the show continued live to air.

He later tweeted how lucky he was to have not been more seriously injured.


“We had a serious mishap tonight outage [sic] live on @nbcagt. A very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it.”

On Facebook he told fans that it wasn’t his girlfriend’s aim that was the problem.

Her laser sight was on target. It appears as though the notch holding the arrow broke and sent the arrow sideways,” he wrote.

“Fortunately because of how it hit, it wasn’t at full power and I walked away with a minor injury.

“Soon we will post the video of how it should’ve looked.
