Illusionist David Blaine
will reportedly attempt his failed breath-holding stunt for a second time. The magician passed out and was rushed to a hospital on Monday after he tried to break a world record
by holding his breath under water for nine minutes.
The 33-year-old had to undergo a brain scan after he was pulled from the water nearly unconscious after 7 minutes - just under two minutes short of the record.
However, Blaine will attempt the stunt again, only this time he will not spend a week in a water tank beforehand, like he did last time. Dr. Murat Gunel, the head of Blaine's medical team, said: "He is going over everything he did and analyzing what happened. He is remarkably strong."
While he was submerged, the illusionist suffered considerable liver and kidney damage and his skin began peeling off.
