  • How I held my breath for 17 minutes

    By: David Blaiin

    Duration: 20:19


    Ted Brief : In this highly personal talk from TEDMED, magician and stuntman David Blaine describes what it took to hold his breath underwater for 17 minutes -- a world record (only two minutes shorter than this entire talk!) -- and what his often death-defying work means to him. Warning: do NOT try this at home.
