David Blaine Breaks World Record on Oprah

David Blaine Breaks World Record on Oprah

Magic man David Blaine set a new world record for holding his breath underwater for 17 minutes and 4 seconds today in Chicago on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

“A lifelong dream,” a glad Blaine, 35, told Oprah moments after setting the record in a water-filled sphere. “I can’t believe that I did that.”

Less than two years ago, Blaine went into convulsions during a similar attempt. The previous record was 16 minutes and 32 seconds.

Blaine‘s record-breaker will air on Oprah this afternoon.

    I saw his last attempt, it was disturbing. Dunno why he would try it again but.. good for him.

    I don’t care for the magician stuff but I am sure the folks that wanted this to be a mystery to them until they watched the show appreciate you telling them the outcome.

    That isnt magic… it’s called stupidity. Magic is pulling a bunny out of a hat

    This was just absolutely amazing! I meditate as well and while i can slow my heart rate down considerably, i cant even come close to holding my breath for a fraction of what he did. (and really wont try to) Such a feat requires extreme mental and physical strength. The man is great!
    And just for the record, just because you may not understand something, it doesnt make it stupid! Expand you mind.
