[WATCH] Magician David Blaine hospitalised after bullet stunt goes wrong
During a stunt, a bullet snapped the protective mouth guard Blain wore, which then hit him in the back of the throat.
JOHANNESBURG – Master magician David Blaine who is well known for his death defying tricks is in hospital after accidentally shooting himself on camera.
The entertainer prepared a twist on his original stunt bullet catch, in which he catches a bullet in his mouth for his new ABC show Beyond Magic.
Things went pear shaped when the bullet snapped the protective mouth guard he had on in half and then hit him in the back of the throat resulting in an injury.
David suffered a cut to the throat and was taken to hospital.
He has told the channel which carries his show that he was sure the bullet went through his head but that despite the act going wrong he will attempt the trick during his live tour again.
