From ITN News - American illusionist David Blaine is spending his first full day suspended in a clear plastic box with nothing but water to sustain him in his toughest challenge yet.
The self-styled modern-day Houdini from New York is planning to live for 44 days and nights in a plastic box measuring 7ft deep, 7ft long and 3ft wide, with no distraction, communication or food while dangling precariously over the river Thames in London.
Blaine entered his tiny temporary home suspended between Tower Bridge and the Greater London Assembly building last night and is not now due to emerge until Sunday October 19 at 9pm.
ITN also has a feature about whether Blaine measures up to Guinness Record Holders. What would Roy Castle, Norris McWhirter & Cheryl Baker make of it all?
