Jonathan was practicing his latest stunt during a rehearsal for the NBC reality series when things went horribly wrong.
In the video captured from set, the stuntman can be seen suspended in midair, dangling on a rope, with two cars also suspended on either side of him, some-odd feet away.
Soon, the action of the stunt begins, and the two cars start swinging toward Jonathan.
He appeared to try to jump up on the rope, out of the way, but the rope snapped and he was slammed between the cars.
From the clip, it looks like he also could’ve tried to unlatch himself from the rope in time miss the cars and fall down onto the inflatable set up on the ground, but the timing was off.
The result saw the two cars sandwiching Jonathan between them and immediately bursting into flames.
After the crash, Jonathan was unresponsive, which led the AGT: Extreme crew first to believe he was dead.
The stunt artist had to be airlifted to a local hospital.
The police spokesperson said: “He suffered severe injuries to his legs and several lacerations, and was airlifted to Grady Hospital.
“He was transported in serious condition, but is currently alive, alert and well.”
The accident is now “under federal investigation.”
A spokesperson for the agency told The Sun exclusively: “The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is aware of this incident and has opened an inspection.”
A spine-chilling 911 call was recently released from a woman on the set of the show during the horrific accident.
The Sun exclusively obtained the 911 call placed to Henry County Dispatch.
The caller can be heard asking someone in the background: “Where is the tourniquet?”
The woman said on the call: “We are at the Atlanta Motor Speedway at the America’s Got Talent filming location.
“We had a man suspended from a cable with cars that were supposed to slam into each other, and he didn’t drop in time and they slammed into him.
“He’s about a 40-year-old white male. He fell about 40 feet. He missed the airbag and landed on his head.”
The caller explained Jonathan’s condition as “agonal and posturing.”
Back in 2020, Jonathan finished as a semifinalist on AGT.
The stunt artist was then invited back to film for the Extreme edition, which is hosted by Terry Crews and judged by Nikki Bella, Travis Pastrana, and Simon Cowell.
