NEW YORK - Magician-daredevil David Blaine is ready to shock people.

Blaine is returning to New York City on Oct. 5 for a three-day, three-night stunt called "Electrified: One Million Volts Always On." It will be streamed live.

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

Blain is returning to New York City Oct. 5-8 for a three day, three night stunt called “Electrified: One Million Volts Always On.” It will be streamed live. Blaine once set a world-record for holding his breath underwater for 17 minutes. He has also been buried alive for a week, encased inside a six-ton block of ice, and stood on top a 100-foot tall pillar for 36 hours without a safety net.

Blaine's last stunt was hanging upside down without a net high over New York's Central Park for 60 hours in 2008. But the grand finale of the "Dive of Death" stunt didn't go according to plan.

His other stunts include holding his breath underwater for 17 minutes and 4 seconds, being buried alive for a week in a see-through coffin and being encased in a block of ice for 63 hours.
