Criss Angel At Clearwater Beach 7/30/08
With timed detonators ticking down four minutes, illusionist Criss Angel must remove the stainless steel, handcuffs, pick locks on three doors, then race up four flights of stairs and through two more locks to the roof.
But he won’t be safe yet.
He still has to grab a ladder hanging from a helicopter that will whisk him 1,000 feet into the air before the building below him implodes.
If he does tonight’s stunt at the Spyglass Resort on Clearwater Beach, Fla., in 3 minutes and 30 seconds or less, he’ll be OK. One second longer and the helicopter won’t get high enough, possibly resulting in the Las Vegas-based escape artist’s death.
“When 4,500 tons of cement come barreling to earth, my mission is not to be under that,” said Angel, 40. “Because it’s going to come down whether I’m in it or not.”
Angel’s show, “Mindfreak,” A&E’s most-watched program, will be broadcast live for the first time tonight. Millions will be watching on TV, possibly 10,000 more on the beach, where the stunt will be performed on the sixth floor of the nine-story Spyglass Resort...
