Jonathan Goodwin, 41, was supposed to narrowly slip between two cars and drop onto a mattress below, as the vehicles swing toward him from 70 feet in the air.

Jonathan Goodwin was filming the stunt for “America’s Got Talent: Extreme” at the time of the accident

A stomach-turning, 10-second clip obtained by TMZ shows the timing was off in the daredevil feat — resulting in Goodwin getting sandwiched by the cars as they explode.
Goodwin, who was filming the stunt for the heart-racing spinoff of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” then fell to the ground after being struck by the cars, hitting his head — which the clip does not show, TMZ said.
He was airlifted to a hospital in critical condition and underwent surgery.
His current condition is not known.
The harrowing scene left some crew members believing he was killed, TMZ reported.

Instead of falling to a mattress below after freeing himself from as the stunt was designed, the exploding vehicles crushed Jonathan Goodwin as they converged.
