A 'Britain's Got Talent' hopeful was rushed to hospital after a stunt went wrong.
Air Gravity, a gymnastic group from Northamptonshire, turned up at the Birmingham auditions hoping to impress judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
But the audience were left stunned when during one tricky manoeuvre, a male member of the team mistimed a flip and crashed down, suffering a dislocated shoulder.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "The act was going well and everyone seemed to be enjoying it. They were different to some of the stuff that's been on the show before.
"But, towards the end of the act, one guy bounced from one trampoline to another and grimaced with pain when he landed."
As a precaution, show medics sent him to hospital, where he was looked at and given painkillers.
During their act, Air Gravity - which came second on ITV's 'Let's Get Gold' last year - impressed the judges and audience as they daringly jumped between trampolines.
In 2010, gymnastics act Spelbound won 'Britain's Got Talent' after wowing viewers with their spectacular routines.
