Jonathan Goodwin Speaks Out A Week After 'AGT: Extreme' Accident

“You can’t say you don’t get out what you put in,” Jonathan started his message. “I’ve tried my hardest over the years to be kind, thoughtful, honest supportive and good. A couple of days ago my life took a complete left turn…and the outpouring of love from all the corners of the world; from people I didn’t even think would know or remember me… has just been astonishing. Truly incredible.”

Jonathan went on, “I will have a lot to say on that matter and the benefits of being kind in the future.. but thank you. Thank you to everyone who has reached out and sent their love and support. It literally has been a lifesaver.”

He then poked fun at death, writing, “To death I say nananana boo boo.”

“I have been to the very brink and dodged the worst that a human being can, without fear…because I was protected by love. Love is all you need, so make sure you get some, cos its good s***,” he wrote. “There is a long road to recovery and that won’t look like what it did… I may leave the daft s*** alone for a while, but I have a lot left to do in this world. Maybe we can make something good together?”

Jonathan was injured after his stunt went wrong. He had been suspended 70 feet in the air in a straitjacket hanging by his feet from a wire with two cars suspended on either side of him swinging back and forth. The stunt involved him freeing himself in order to land on an air mattress below.

But he wasn’t fast enough, and got sandwiched between them as they smashed together.

Production on AGT: Extreme has been paused indefinitely following the incident.
