It's all fun and games until someone gets a flaming arrow shot into their neck on live television. That happened last night during the "America's Got Talent" Season 11 Quarterfinals. Thankfully, stunt man Ryan Stock is OK, and felt well enough to tweet about the "serious mishap" after the show.
As a chipper retro song set a mood for sunshine and lollipops, Ryan Stock shoved a target down his throat, which his fiancée Amber Lynn Walker was meant to hit with a flaming arrow. But apparently the crossbow had a malfunction, sending the arrow into his neck. Awkward.
The official YouTube video does not show the full aftermath of what happened:However, a fan did share more, from their own TV set (via EW): After the show, Stock tweeted about the accident:
We had a serious mishap tonight outage live on @nbcagt. A very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it.

Glad he's OK. That was scary. But it's also live TV, and anything can happen. Check out more acts from the live show on the official YouTube page. Most of them turned out fine!
