David Blaine nearly died

Magician David Blaine almost killed himself as when he tried to shoots a bullet into his own throat during a crazy stunt.

David Blaine was performing a magic trick for his latest show, Beyond Magic.When the incident was broadcast this week, it revealed that the illusionist attempted a stunt called the ‘bullet catch’, in which he tries to catch a bullet shot from a real gun in his mouth.

The trick was supposed to end with the bullet in a small cup inside the 43-year-old magician’s mouth. But a shield attached to the cup to prevent it from going further into his head shattered, sending the container and ammunition slamming into the back of his throat.

Watch the clip below:

When the bullet struck the cup, there was a high-pitched ringing in my ear,” Blaine explained. “I felt an impact on the back of my throat.”

The TV magician was later taken to hospital and treated for a laceration in his throat. The clip sees one of his assistants plead with Blaine never to perform the stunt again.
