However the Canadian never made it to the show as something went wrong: as 23-year-old stuntman Samuel Koch was trying to jump over moving cars, he landed awkwardly and motionless while TV cameras were rolling. Millions of viewers witnessed the terrible accident.
Alongside Justin Bieber, Cameron Diaz and Take That were also supposed to take part on Saturday’s show.
Bieber tweeted about the tragic incident: “Just want to let my people in Germany know I won’t be on Wetten Dass tonight as an accident has taken place and…. we all don’t think it is right to continue. Please pray for Samuel Koch & his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety.”
The latest status on Koch is that he is alive, however, he doesn’t feel his legs.
