US magician David Blaine has this stunt where he shoots himself in the mouth which almost cost his life, reports The Sun. He performed the risky act in front of an audience of 20,000 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The show was broadcast on ABC.
The 43-year-old Blaine shot himself in the mouth with a rifle at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las vegas. The nozzle had to catch the bullet, but it did not and shot against his mouth.
“I thought I was dead. The impact felt as if the bullet had gone right through my head. Then I felt an immense pain, I realized I was still alive,”
David Blaine had prepared for the act on five meters from a rifle. With a rope he pulled the trigger of the weapon. The magician performed the act for the first time in 2010.
The act will also be staged at the upcoming world tour of Blaine.
