Back in 2006 Jonathon had an accident involving an arrow from his archery. He felll on the non-sharp broken end of the arrow while trying to hang a light fixture. The arrow pierced through hs stomach, liver, an artery and several inches in his heart. It is through speed of hospitalization, modern surgical techniques and Jonathan's will to live that he continues with us today. His surgeon, Dr. Edwin Hayashi said this injury is always fatal and it is a miracle Jonathan is alive today....I wish him and Charlotte the best in these tough times!

They are famous magicians. Just because they do real illusions and not camera editing like some magicians does not make them unknown.

Would like to hear more details on this.

I have known Johnathan and Charlotte since the 1970's and watched them become a top act through hard work and grit. I have watched them overcome serious injury. I have witnessed their generosity of spirit and support for the community of magicians and other performers. I have nothing but admiration for their success, and nothing but contempt for the magicians among those who now slam them in this venue. I wish them well and sincerely hope this unfortunate situation will be put behind them, and their great talent will continue to make all of us proud.
