Daredevil goes for shock-factor with latest stunt

NEW YORK – Daredevil stuntman David Blaine lit up New York’s Pier 54 on Friday for his latest high voltage feat.

The illusionist is scheduled to spend three days and nights standing in the middle of a million volts of electric currents streamed by tesla coils.

The stunt is called “Electrified: One Million Volts Always On.”

Spectators can type messages to Blaine and control the electricity around him while on site or at viewing stations in London, Beijing, Tokyo and Sydney.

“Electrified” also will be streamed on YouTube.

The 39-year-old is wearing a chainmail bodysuit as a barrier between himself and the electric currents.

Blaine’s past stunts include hanging upside down over Central Park, being buried alive and encased in a block of ice.
