Watch: David Blaine Stunt Goes Horribly Wrong as Magician Is Injured in 80-Ft. Drop — ‘Wow, That Hurt’

David Blaine is no stranger to dangerous stunts, but his latest one did not go as planned. During a rehearsal of his upcoming stunt, the magician fell from a height of 80 feet and sustained injuries.

The stunt was originally planned to be performed on Wednesday, September 2nd, but was postponed due to high winds. Blaine had planned to hold onto a series of helium-filled balloons and float up into the sky before descending using a parachute.

However, during a rehearsal of the stunt on Monday, August 31st, things went horribly wrong. As Blaine was holding onto the balloons, he suddenly let go and fell to the ground. The fall was captured on video and posted online.

In the video, Blaine can be heard saying, “Wow, that hurt,” after hitting the ground. He was immediately rushed to the hospital and is now recovering from a punctured lung and broken bones.

The incident has raised questions about the safety of such dangerous stunts, especially during a time when hospitals are already overwhelmed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many have taken to social media to express their concern for Blaine’s well-being and to question the need for such stunts in the first place.

Blaine has been known for his death-defying stunts, which have included being buried alive, standing on a pole for days, and being encased in ice for hours. However, the magician has also faced criticism for his stunts, with some accusing him of perpetuating a culture of risk-taking without regards to safety.

Blaine has yet to release a statement about the incident, but it is clear that the stunt did not go as planned. As the world continues to grapple with a pandemic that has claimed countless lives, perhaps it is time for us to reconsider the value of such risky behavior.
