David Blaine is amazing; I don't think he's human. I like his big spectacles such as this but his street magic specials are still the best!

I think the entire thing would be validated if, when he finally emerges from the sphere, his trunks fall off and he screams "I WAS IN THE POOL!"

Blaine to get medical treatment

Illusionist David Blaine, who is spending seven-days submerged in a water-filled sphere, is to receive medical treatment.

Blaine's spokesman Pat Smith said the 33-year-old's peeling skin and overall condition was worrying doctors.

But he added Blaine was "determined" to complete the "human aquarium" stunt at Lincoln Center in New York.

A mask and an air line are keeping Blaine alive, and he is also getting liquid nutrition fed via a tube.

World record

But prolonged submersion in water poses a number of hazards, including nerve damage, blackouts, sleep deprivation and skin problems.

Blaine has said his skin is causing him pain "like constant pins and needles" after five days in the acrylic sphere.

Mr Smith said: "Doctors are concerned that he's weakening. They are going to work with him through the weekend, trying to stabilize both his diet and his training regimen.

"His skin is peeling very badly on his hands. Those are our biggest concerns right now."

Blaine will end his challenge on Monday with an attempt to break the world record for holding breath under water, which currently stands at eight minutes, 58 seconds.

He has said for the record attempt he would come out of the sphere to be handcuffed, wrapped in 150lb (68kg) of metal chains and dropped back inside.

Blaine has undergone intensive training for the challenge, shedding 50lbs (23kg) in body weight since January to improve the efficiency with which his body uses oxygen.

David thinks he's going to get a record for holding his breath, but this guy begs to differ:

Mark Harris of the British Free Diving Association spoke out, saying that Blaine will have an unfair advantage. "[Since] he will be breathing compressed air under water... he will have a much higher concentration of oxygen molecules... in competitive freediving, we are positively banned from breathing pure oxygen before the event."

Even if Blaine succeeds in holding his breath for more than eight minutes and fifty-eight seconds, it is unlikely that the feat will be officially recognised as a new world record. This is due to the fact that judges from the International Association for the Development of Apnea (AIDA) would have to be present to verify that Blaine breathed no pure oxygen for at least two hours prior to beginning his attempt at the world record. The world record for holding one's breath after having breathed pure oxygen is actually closer to fifteen minutes.
