David Blaine To Live In Box For 44 Days

Magician DAVID BLAINE will be suspended from a crane in a see-through box without food for 44 days for his next public feat of endurance.

Blaine will undertake the stunt in London, England, and will enter the Perspex box on 5 September (03). His only nourishment will be a tube feeding him water and another tube for urination.

The event - which takes place on the banks of the River Thames - is to be broadcast on British television, and is entitled DAVID BLAINE: ABOVE THE BELOW.

Blaine says, "There will be no trickery and no means of escape.

"We are all capable of infinitely more than we believe. We are stronger and more resourceful than we know, and we can endure much more than we think we can.

"In truth, the only restrictions on our capacity to astonish ourselves and each other are imposed by our own minds.

"My next performance will demonstrate these ideas through the most extreme exercise in isolation and physical deprivation ever attempted."

Blaine's most recent public event entailed standing on top of a 30.5 metres (100 feet) pole in a New York park for 5 hours.
