Blaine, 35 years old, [had] been suspended since Monday [September 22, 2008 or 60 hours] on a cord from a crane above the ice rink in Central Park, New York.

There were a few breaks, which according to many critics made the task much easier: almost every hour he took a break for a drink, to urinate and to me checked out by a doctor. One of these breaks, one a platform next to the structure, lasted about 20 minutes in which he drank loads of orange juice, took a whizz behind a panel and had his eyes checked.

According to his personal doctor, the main worry was that Blaine, who apparently slept for three days, would suffer cerebral and ocular damage caused by the pressure of the blood in his head.
