How David Blaine Held His Breath for 17mins

Throwing back to 2010 when Blaine presented a TED Talk...

David Blaine is still to this day one of the greatest illusionists and magicians ever. In 2010 he took to the stage at a TEDx event in the US. He spoke about his world record breaking attempt at holing his breath for the longest time underwater.

"In this highly personal talk from TEDMED, magician and stuntman David Blaine describes what it took to hold his breath underwater for 17 minutes -- a world record (only two minutes shorter than this entire talk!) -- and what his often death-defying work means to him. Warning: do NOT try this at home."
