Tonights guests would've included Justin Bieber, Take That, Cameron Diaz, Cher, Phil Collins, Christoph Waltz, Seth Rogen, Otto Waalkes, Sara Nuru, Hardy Krüger and Alexandra Maria Lara.
The TV channel is going to inform the audiences at home during it's news broadcast at 10.45 pm about the contestant's condition.
The contestant bet he could jump over 5 cars (obviously one at a time) going at a speed of 25 km/h with "Power-Jumpers". After his fourth attempt where he tried jump over an Audi driven by his father he landed on his face instead of landing on his "Power-Jumpers". Realizing the 23-year-old-contestant wasn't moving anymore, hosts Thomas Gottschalk and Michelle Hunziker rushed towards the young man, immediately asking for a doctor.

I hope he's going to be ok. :(
Video of the accident:
Sorry about the info coming slowly... I've got to translate everything from German to English... ;)

1) ... is at Universitätskrankenhaus Düsseldorf (= university hospital Düsseldorf).
2) ... his parents are with him.
