Acrobat Falls Into Fiery Pit As Husband Fails To Catch Her During 'AGT' Trapeze Stunt

A husband and wife from Utah made their America's Got Talent debut this Tuesday and stunned the crowd with their mesmerizing tricks — until one risky trapeze act went horribly wrong.

In what would become their final act of the evening, Mary and Tyce were twisting their bodies up in the air, when the hunky acrobat turned upside down and blindfolded himself. Then, his wife fell back, waiting for him to grasp her ankles and catch her. But as he tried, she slipped away and fell onto the stage, which was lit with scorching flames for the complex number.

The audience gasped and the screen flashed to Mary's mother and infant son, who watched the dramatic incident unfold from the stands.

Thankfully, a plush matt cushioned Mary's fall, and she soon picked herself up, smiling to their terrified judges and viewers.

Her husband passionately kissed her as soon as he was brought down from the trapeze and embraced her for a minute, as the shocked audience clapped and cheered.


"We would like to try the trick one more time," Mary asked the judges, seconds after the scary fall.

"No! It's fine!" a frightened Mel B yelled. "It's fine."

"This is not America's Got Perfection, it's America's Got Talent!" guest host Ken Jeong added. "Nobody can do this. I mean, it's OK!"

Simon Cowell also agreed, praising the passionate acrobats for their effort, hard work and pure talent.

"I don't think there's ever been a singer on any of our competitions who's been note-perfect," he said. "It doesn't make them not amazing, it makes them human."

Mary and Tyce broke into tears of happiness and gave a shout-out to their adorable baby son in the crowd as the judges passed them on to the next round.

"It means so much to us," Mary said between sobs. "It's been such a long road to get here, and to be through to the live shows means we're one step closer to the dream."

America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
