Blaine Announces Next Stunt
American illusionist David Blaine, who failed to break the world record for holding his breath underwater last week (08MAY06), has announced his next stunt will be living among wild animals in the jungle. The 33-year-old was released from a New York City hospital last week (09MAY06), after spending seven days in a spherical aquarium. Blaine needed medical treatment after suffering convulsions and passing out while attempting to hold his breath for nine minutes. But the magician has already moved on to planning his next stunt, claiming the challenge is more unbelievable than anything he has attempted before. He tells the New York Post, "I'm planning to live harmoniously among wild beasts. And I'd like to do it alone in the jungle."
