David Blaine will be ‘drowned alive’ as part of his latest shocking stunt, the creepy magician has revealed.
The 33-year-old will live in a “human aquarium” for seven days and nights outside New York’s Lincoln Centre and conclude his daring stunt by attempting to hold his breath longer than 8 minutes and 58 seconds to break the current record.
The stunt - which commences on May 1st - will take place in public view and passers-by will be able to touch the aquarium, have their picture taken with David and attempt to communicate with him.
David will receive liquid nutrition through a tube during his week in the 8-foot “human aquarium”.
To prepare himself for the demanding act, he has undergone tough training with the US Navy Seals and a world class free-diving team.
David’s previous stunts include fasting for 44 days while suspended in a small plastic box over London’s River Thames, balancing on a small platform for 35-hours and being encased inside a block of ice for 61 hours.
