Top Indian magician drowns while attempting chained Houdini-style river escape


Sitting on a boat on a river in West Bengal, India, magician Chanchal Lahiri had others bind him in ropes and chains and prepare to barricade him in a cage down in the water. A day after crews began combing the river to find him, his body – still shackled – washed up late Monday not far from where he had plunged into the water, the Guardian reported. Leading up to Sunday’s stunt, the magician told AFP that he did almost the same stunt more than two decades ago on the Hooghly River, a branch of the Ganges River. “All magic has to be perfect, and it takes a lot of practice, but even with practice, things can go wrong. I don’t know if it was a breathing issue or just not being able to undo the locks.”
