David Blaine: Drowned Alive, 21 July 2006
Author: Jackson Booth-Millard from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I first saw David Blaine perform the Frozen in Time stunt, and I heard about him standing on a pole and living in a box, and this 2006 stunt was just as entertaining as all of them. Basically Blaine was put into a large fishbowl type globe filled with water. He basically had to live under water for a whole week breathing through a tube, and being fed through it. He didn't really do much over the week, but he and everyone watching him was patient. On the final day, to make it more interesting he tried to hold his breath for more than 9-10 minutes (the record), he failed at doing this, but he did accomplish the living in water task. I can't wait to see his next stunt, but I also wonder why he wants to do these things. Very good!
