David Blaine - Electrifying! David Blaine Completes One Million Volts Stunt In New York

David Blaine’s latest magic trick One Million Volts is complete, after he spent three days acting as a conductor in a powerful electrical current storm, reports The Daily Mail.

The 39-year-old endurance artist, famous for his long-lasting feats, emerged relatively unscathed last night, after having volts conducted around his body for 72 hours. We say unscathed, he didn’t exactly look to be in full health as he stepped down from his electrical chamber, but considering the magnitude of the stunt, it’s safe to say he’s fine. Before the electric escapade, Blaine said: “Seventy-two hours or more in an electromagnetic field can do... anything to the brain. There are a lot of unknowns here. I don't know how I could ever top this. This is an overly-ambitious idea, and I'm literally shocked that it came together.' Perhaps he wasn’t ‘literally’ shocked then, but he certainly was when he stepped into that chainmail suit.

Blaine, of course, is famous for the dangerous nature of his stunts, but after recently becoming a father, he’s had to refocus, and look upon his tricks in a different light. 'Becoming a dad, of course, it changes you now have a purpose in life,' Blaine told the Mail while preparing for the stunt. “I think differently about what I’m doing,” he added. He still did it, though, didn’t he?
