David Blaine Wraps Up High-Voltage Stunt in NYC
Magician Emerges Unscathed Following One Million Volt Shock

Daredevil David Blaine has finished what could be said to be his most electrifying stunt.

The magician emerged shortly before 9 p.m. Monday after spending three days and nights standing in the middle of one million volts of electric currents at New York's Pier 54.

A spokesman says Blaine was able to walk with assistance, speak and kiss fiancée Alizee Guinochet (ah-LEE'-zay gwee-noh-SHAY') before being taken to a hospital to be examined.

The 39-year-old Blaine wore a chainmail bodysuit as a barrier between himself and the currents, emitted by Tesla coils.

The stunt was called "Electrified: One Million Volts Always On." It was streamed on YouTube, with help from Intel Corp.

Blaine's past stunts include hanging upside down over Central Park and being encased in a block of ice.
