This week’s video is a TED talk given by magician David Blaine in 2009 talking about his various Static Apnea and Assisted Static Apnea attempts including his 2006 “Drowned Alive” stunt in New York City and his 17min Oxygen Assisted breath hold on Oprah in 2008.  A highly personal talk gives insight into the journey he went on through Freediving.

  1. How can yu put a focus a video without any warning?? Mr. Blaine never says clearly in this talk that he uses oxygen, and sounds like he could we world champion with 6 month training… More dangerous he says and recommend to use hyperventilation!!! Please remove this video or make some warnings in your presentation!
