#David Blaine Health Update
Docs Give Magic Man Thumbs Up To Try Stunt Again
NEW YORK CITY, May16
- Magician David Blaine
was briefly hospitalized last week for observation after his failed attempt to hold his breath for nine minutes during his Drowned Alive
special last Monday on ABC.
Despite peeling skin and severe fatigue, Blaine entertained the hospital staff by levitating above his bed, pretending to die by causing his heart monitor to "flatline" and making the panties of several nurses disappear.
"David’s a real character," said one nurse who didn’t want to be identified. "We all love him."
Doctors say he should fully recover from his underwater ordeal.
Blaine has vowed to do the breath-holding stunt again, this time without spending a week in the tank prior to the attempt.... (MARTY SHERMAN)
A.) I love that guy too. Not physically, of course.
B.) I don’t think I could sit through another two hour special.
C.) Personally, I’d rather see the card tricks.#
