David Blaine Gets Shot In The Stomach Multiple Times, But Catching A Bullet In His Mouth Almost Killed Him

The other day we shared some clips from David Blaine’s new magic special Beyond Magic. We saw him freak Jennifer Lawrence the hell out. We also saw him spit a LIVE FROG out of his mouth.

Also, as we mentioned in that story, he closed the show by catching a bullet in his mouth. However, as it turns out that trick didn’t go exactly according to plan.

Reports the Daily Mail

“When the bullet struck the cup, there was a high-pitch ringing in my ears, and I felt an impact at the back of my throat. And I was sure that the bullet went right through my head, and that I was dead.”

Blaine was checked out immediately by a doctor onset, who determined he had just suffered a cut to the throat.

Turns out that there was a teensy little problem with the mouth guard…

Upon catching the bullet, the mouth guard snapped inside his mouth, with a broken piece hitting and cutting the back of his throat. Blaine was taken to hospital for treatment, but he insists he will still perform the trick during his upcoming live tour.

Now if that isn’t enough to make you think David Blaine is legit crazy, wait until you see how he prepared for the trick.

To prepare for catching a bullet in his mouth, Blaine did pretty much what anyone does, right? He had someone shoot him point blank with an assortment of handguns while wearing a a bulletproof vest with the impact plate removed. Totally normal.

Why would he do such a thing? Well, according to Blaine in a video shot for Rolling Stone, “In order to catch a bullet, I need to get comfortable with this first. In order to figure out if I have the confidence to do it, I needed to get shot here a bunch of times so I understand, ‘Oh, it’s possible.’”

Dude is insane. Watch…
