David Blaine

He Did it! World Record Holder!!!


We had some doubts, but….he did it!!

David Blaine set a new world record Wednesday for breath-holding.

The illusionist and daredevil held his breath underwater for 17 minutes and 4 seconds!

Blain’s attempt was broadcast live during the Oprah Winfrey Show on Wednesday.

According to reports, Blaine looked relaxed afterward and said the record was “a lifelong dream.”

The previous record was 16 minutes and 32 seconds, set Feb. 10 by Switzerland’s Peter Colat, according to Guinness World Records.

“I feel great,” Blaine said after he broke the record.

While he was submerged he started to develop an irregular heartbeat. And, yet, he went through with it anyways.

Congrats! Idiot!
