In his attempt to challenge the "breath hold" record of 8 minutes and 58
seconds, magician David Blaine lapsed into unconsciousness on national
television Monday night and was convulsing when rescuers brought him to the
surface of a spherical aquarium in New York's Lincoln Center where he had been
submerged for a week, one of the rescuers told the Associated Press Tuesday.
Professional freediving trainer Kirk Krack, who had worked with Blaine before
the stunt, told the A.P.: "I wasn't focused on records; I was thinking of a
rescue. ... If we hadn't intervened, he would still be at the bottom of the
sphere doing a breath-hold." The wire service said that Blaine was in a wheel
chair as he left Roosevelt Hospital in New York Tuesday and that friends helped
him walk to a waiting car that drove him home.
