David Blaine wraps up high-voltage stunt in New York City
NEW YORK (AP) - Daredevil David Blaine has finished what could be called his most electrifying stunt.
The magician emerged shortly before 9pm (9am, Singapore time) on Monday after spending three days and three nights standing in the middle of 1 million volts of electric currents at New York's Pier 54.
A spokesman says Blaine was able to walk with assistance, speak and kiss fiancee Alizee Guinochet before being taken to a hospital to be examined.
The 39-year-old Blaine wore a chainmail bodysuit as a barrier between himself and the currents, emitted by Tesla coils.
