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.
