Really sad to read this news story today.

"An Indian magician who was lowered into a river while shackled in a bid to recreate Harry Houdini's world-famous trick has drowned, police confirmed."

RIP

WOW it looks like he did not have much escape experience .... although I am impressed that he kept the chain with the 6 locks on his legs we sooooooo widespread.

Technically it looked relatively easy ... wonder what went reong. I mean apart from not escaping and drowning.

I mean yes it's sad that he died but it looks like he didn't have a clue. I know we should not judge a book by its cover - but the way the chain was put on. the way his support crew stepped over him just as he was about to be hoisted, the locks. It all looks like they did not really know what they were doing.

They probably didn't know what they were at. Or maybe they did and got complacent. Lesson is vigilance is key!

Remember. With other magic if something goes wrong, you can chalk it up.... W underwater escapes
it could be meet your maker . for real. there is a downside to be considered when doing these type of escapes.
It is more than ... he should have.. etc. Things can go wrong.
