Over the years, he has put himself in multiple extreme situations and has been able to dodge death every time.
According to his website, he has been described as a “modern-day superhero,” and over the years, has been attacked by sharks, burned at the stake, buried alive, bitten by rattlesnakes, hung from buildings, helicopters, and cable cars, among other things.
His website also states he has performed on nearly every continent except Antarctica.
What happened to Goodwin on AGT?
It was reported on October 15, 2021, that Goodwin sustained “brutal injuries” after a wild stunt went horrifically wrong, according to TMZ .
“Goodwin was suspended 70 feet in the air in a straightjacket hanging by his feet from a wire,” a production source told the outlet.
“Two cars were suspended on either side of him, swinging back and forth. The stunt was for Goodwin to free himself from the restraints and then fall on an air mattress, and avoid getting crushed by the cars as they swung in the air.”
A mishap then occurred when the two cars smashed into each other, leaving Jonathan “sandwiched” in between.
The informant recalled: “The impact caused the cars to explode, erupting in a gigantic fireball. Goodwin fell to the ground and hit his head.”
Goodwin was reportedly then rushed to the hospital and taken into surgery.
At this time, his current condition remains unclear.
Is Jonathan Goodwin married?
Goodwin was previous married to Katy Goodwin, who was known as his former Magician’s Assistant.
After their marriage in 2011, Katy often performed alongside her husband and assisted in his death defying stunts.
Fans were shocked when Goodwin revealed he was raising his daughter, Milli, on his own as it still remains unclear what happened between the two.
Following the end of his marriage, he has since started a new relationship with actress Amanda Abbington and it was reported that the two might be on the verge of getting engaged after making their relationship Instagram official.
