Dangerous act goes terribly wrong on 'America's Got Talent'
A husband and wife trapeze team did a dangerous trick on America’s Got Talent that had gone wrong and almost turned into a deadly accident.
On the July 17th episode of the hit talent show, Mary and Tyce performed incredible trapeze stunts that wowed, not only the crowd but the judges as well.
The couple were hanging on a metal bar high above the stage and did various gravity-defying tricks. They also had fire included in their performance, which made it even more dangerous.
In addition to the thrill brought by their stunts, Tyce was diagnosed to be legally blind in his right eye because of progressive eye disease.

Everyone in the crowd was on the edge of their seats as the couple’s performance was about to end.
During their final big stunt, Tyce blindfolded himself and hung upside down, preparing to catch his wife.
In a bold move, Mary fell backward as Tyce tried to catch her by her ankles.
Everyone in the audience and the judges screamed when Mary slipped through his grip, and she was sent falling to the floor.
Seconds passed, and everyone was silent. Shortly after, Mary stood up and smiled at the audience to let them know that she was okay.
Fortunately, there was a heavy safety mat on the floor, which prevented what would have been a horrific accident.
Tyce felt terrible and quickly hugged and kissed his wife as soon as he reached the ground.
The couple, even though they still appeared shaken by what happened, told the judges that they wanted to try the catch again.
Although, the judges were quick to say no with Mel B yelling, “No, it’s fine! It’s fine.”
Guest judge Ken Jeong added, “This is not America’s Got Perfection, it’s America’s Got Talent, nobody can do this.”
Simon Cowell also consoled the couple and said everybody makes mistakes on the America’s Got Talent stage. He emphasized that they had just avoided what would have been a severe accident.
As for Howie Mandel, he told an already-emotional Mary, “You almost got hurt very badly, and your first thought was ‘Let me do that again!’ only on America’s Got Talent does that happen.”
Heidi Klum went on to praise the couple for their passion and dedication. Soon after, Cowell announced that they would still be moving forward to the live rounds despite what happened.
