Tuesday was a rough night for a Canadian daredevil on America's Got Talent. Judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell appeared horrified as Ryan Stock was hit in the throat by a flaming arrow fired by fiancee AmberLynn Walker live on TV, the New York Daily News reports. After a few tense moments, Stock assured the judges that he was OK and he hadn't been seriously hurt by the arrow, which had been aimed at a target he was holding in his mouth, reports Billboard.

"I'm OK, I'm OK," he told host Nick Cannon. Mandel urged him to seek medical attention anyway. It was a "very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it," tweeted Stock, who bills his act as "stupid human stunts." (After 18,000 jumps, this skydiver tried one without a parachute.)
