David is reporting constant “pins and needles” and doctors are beginning to get very worried about his health.

Pat Smith, the illusionists spokesperson 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.”

David Blaine is attempting to stay underwater for 7 days and then end his stunt with a breath-hold of 9 minutes whilst trying to escape from chains.
