Electrifying magician Blaine gets set to shock

MAGICIAN-daredevil David Blaine is preparing to shock people.

Blaine is returning to New York City on October 5 for a three-day, three-night stunt called 'Electrified: One Million Volts Always On' which will be streamed live on the internet.

A trailer for the stunt released last night shows the 39-year-old endurance artist wearing a futuristic-looking bodysuit in between two conductors.

Blaine's last stunt was hanging upside down without a net high over New York's Central Park for 60 hours in 2008.

The New York native's other stunts include holding his breath under water for 17 minutes and four seconds, being buried alive for a week in a see-through coffin, and being encased in a block of ice for 63 hours.
