David Blaine thought he was headed to the crossroads with Uncle Charles when an extremely dangerous stunt went terribly wrong!
The 43-year-old magician suffered a lacerated throat when he attempted to catch a bullet with his mouth and his gum shield shattered.
In the "Beyond Magic" special that aired on E4 on Friday night, David admitted, "I was sure the bullet went right though my head and that I was dead."
Time just started
to move really slow.
When the bullet struck the cup, there was a high-pitched ringing in my ears and I felt an impact on the back of my throat.
I was sure the bullet went right through my head and that I was dead.
Suddenly I became aware of the pain and it brought me back. At that moment I realised that the mouth guard had shattered again, and I was alive.
