David Blaine Blackout

It is still a pretty amazing attempt. He was trying to break the 8 min 58 sec record for holding one's breath as he was submerged underwater. He lasted 7 min and 8 sec before he blacked out and had to be rescued.

Murat Gunel, Blaine's doctor, said he advised the modern-day Houdini against performing the escape, which he said could cause a blackout, a heart attack, a stroke, or nerve damage in the fingers.
