‘I was sure the bullet went right through my head’: Magician David Blaine on scary stunt-gone-wrong

Magician David Blaine nearly killed himself performing a stunt that aired Saturday night in the U.K.

The 43-year-old magician filmed the stunt, in which he caught a bullet in his mouth, in November at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas but not everything went as he anticipated, the Daily Mail reported.

Blaine held a metal cup between his teeth and aimed the rifle carefully, then pulled the string.


But when the bullet struck it shattered his gumsheild protecting his teeth and slammed the cup into the back of his throat.

“When the bullet struck the cup, there was a high-pitched ringing in my ears and I felt an impact on the back of my throat,” he said.

“I was sure the bullet went right through my head and that I was dead.

“Suddenly I became aware of the pain and it brought me back. At that moment I realized that the mouth guard had shattered again, and I was alive.”

Blain’s friends will no longer help him with the trick but the magician still plans on including it in his world tour, according to the Mail.


“I committed to doing it live at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for 20,000 people,” Blaine said.

“The part that I didn’t really spend enough attention on was building a better mouth guard.”
