Escape Artist Risks His Life for 'America's Got Talent' Performance - Watch Now!

Escape artist Demian Aditya risked his life while being buried alive during a stunt on the latest episode of America’s Got Talent!

The contestant was chained up and placed in a box ten feet underground while sand poured on top of him. He only had a set amount of time before the air in the box would run out and he would die.

Demian‘s wife was standing outside of the box and start to have a panic attack when the time ran out and there was no sign of him. Lo and behold, he somehow escaped without anyone noticing and was dressed in costume as one of the men pouring sand on the box!

You might need to rewind the video a couple times, just like the first time he auditioned.

    How did he escape? That was insane!!!

    More than just his wife was “in on it”. I’d include the judges,
    producers, cameramen, etc. For example, for Howie to suggest he would run out of
    air in just 45 seconds was straight up idiotic. You could hold your
    breath for that long and not use any air. Speaking of air, you could go
    30 minutes in a box that big before you start to run out of oxygen. 90 seconds? Gimme a
    break. For people with a brain, this stunt was more annoying than
    entertaining.

    Tunnel or twin. Your choice.

  • AmericanPenguin

    I didn’t see a tunnel and he wouldn’t sacrifice his twin for a trick. The guy filling in the dirt never left the scene so if it is a twin, when will they dig him back up?

  • Cle_Clowns_fan

    Just because you didn’t see a tunnel doesn’t mean it wasn’t there, could’ve been down by his feet which was never shown by cameras. As for his twin, they could simply get him out after the crowd disperses. If that was gonna be a long time following the “trick”, fresh air could be pumped into the box. If it’s only 15 minutes or so, he would be fine without it since it wasn’t air-tight and barely even buried.

  • AmericanPenguin

    Not saying that’s not the case but if anybody had found out he was a twin, his reputation would drop instantly.

  • Cle_Clowns_fan

    True, so let’s go with the tunnel and clever camera work (and cringe-worthy acting) to focus on the wife instead of the diggers.

  • Marcus Barrett

    The wife is a horrible actor, one would have to be clueless if you didn’t expect for to be in on it again. Shame on agt for not keeping the camera on it as well.

    The illusionist needs to come up with something new and ditch the wife/sidekick adding to the drama….alomg with Simon adding to the fake drama.

  • Diana

    I hate this act…His wife is so freakin’ annoying…

  • Diana

    and his acts are just way too simplistic despite what Simon says…I do love Simon though.

  • C Niven

    What a lot of BS. This idiot has an obvious escape route out of the box that allows him to come out behind the stack of pipe behind the pit. The video of him in the box could easily be pre-recorded as the clear panel in the box is covered in dirt so he can escape without notice. The video is purposely shut off as they obviously can’t show him in there when he has already left the box. Three of the guys covering the box with dirt are lined up on one side of the pit in open view while the fourth guy is all by himself in the corner by the stack of pipe. While his stupid wife makes a hysterical plea to get him out causing a distraction he then switches with the one guy at the corner of the pit by the pipe as was obvious in the end.
