British Showman Survives Russian Roulette Stunt

British magician Derren Brown has survived a game of Russian roulette on 'live' television.

Using a gun loaded with a single bullet by a hand-picked member of the public, Brown fired at his own head before correctly guessing the fifth chamber was loaded and emptying it into a sandbag.

The stunt, held at a secret location abroad because British law bans the use of handguns, was aired on British CHANNEL 4 last night (5OCT03) at 10pm (GMT), with a small time delay to allow crew to pull the plug on coverage in the event he should fail.

The spectacular trick has been dubbed "deplorable" by police who fear it will spark a series of copycat stunts.
