David Blaine came up with another electrifying stunt, this time literally!! The foremost American illusionist has set and broken many records. David performs close up street magic and illusions on a grand style. But most noticeable are his jaw dropping feats of endurance like being buried underwater in a plastic box, and being suspended high over river Thames with water and nothing else for over 44 days and standing on a 100 foot tall pillar in NY for 35 hours, all of which has earned many compliments and voices of disapproval for their risky nature. The newest feat had him stand on a platform 20 feet high on Pier 54 at NY and be continually zapped with about 1 million volts of electricity. Blaine was wrapped in protective gear but the experts and doctors were more worried about him standing continuously without movement for three days than the electrifying bolts. But the highly skilled performer pulled through the event with sheer determination even though he was losing conscious every few minutes. Blaine was taken to hospital were he is being monitored and given medical attention for swollen feet. The extreme feat was sponsored by Intel Corp and streamed over YouTube. Many visited Pier 54 to see this extraordinary stunt and give encouragement to this ultimate performer.
