Blaine finishes electrifying stunt

David Blaine has finished what could be called his most electrifying stunt.

The illusionist emerged after spending three days and three nights standing in the middle of a million volts of electric currents at New York's Pier 54.

A spokesman said Blaine was able to walk with assistance, speak and kiss fiancee Alizee Guinochet before being taken to a hospital to be examined.

Blaine, 39, wore a chainmail bodysuit as a barrier between himself and the currents, emitted by Tesla coils.

The stunt - called "Electrified: One Million Volts Always On" - was streamed on YouTube with help from Intel.

Blaine's past stunts include hanging upside down over Central Park and being encased in a block of ice.
