Every year, we're surprised by some of the acts on America's Got Talent that pull off the EXTREMELY dangerous stunts and last night, one couple's luck ran out — but it could have been a whole lot worse!

On Tuesday, Ryan Stock and his fiancée, stuntwoman AmberLynn Walker, took the AGT stage and performed their bit which was supposed to conclude with Walker shooting a flaming arrow at a target sticking out of Stock's mouth, but she missed!

Unfortunately, the stuntwoman accidentally shot her future husband but thankfully Ryan walked away alive and mostly unhurt! The brunette beauty dished on the scary mishap saying:
