Rescue an illusionist chained in a water urn after being unconscious

The illusionist Pedro Volta was rescued this Saturday unaware of the interior of an urn with a thousand liters of water from which he had to escape after remaining two minutes chained and in a straitjacket. The incident occurred at noon in the Plaza del Doctor Gereda of the Madrid municipality of Navacerrada during the third edition of the International Magi Festival .

The municipal police and the organizers took the escapist out of the water after realizing that, after 120 seconds of the challenge, he had stopped moving inside . Despite the inert state in which the body was rescued from the urn, according to the first signs the event would be related to an apnea, the voluntary suspension of breathing.

This Monday, Pedro Volta explained in the Cope Network that he was "four minutes in cardiorespiratory arrest, literally dead". "They revived me in situ and they got me back to life, for that reason I am very happy", said the illusionist who was about to die for a failed trick.

Volta said that the problem was that it took him too long to unbuckle the first buckle of the straitjacket he was wearing: "I made an effort and got rid of it, but the energy was tremendous. I was exhausted by the exhaustion and tension of thinking that I was not going to achieve it ".

The number in question was that the illusionist Pedro Volta had to perform the challenge of escaping from an urn with a thousand liters of water that had been put in a straitjacket closed with padlocks. In just a couple of minutes he had to break free before he ran out of oxygen, as he appears in the program of the festival that announced the show.

Now, the magician is "strong, with spirit and attitude," and has wanted to apologize for the shocking images of the performance that could be unpleasant for people. Even so, we keep going to this kind of numbers because it points out "magic is a wonderful art and it's worth it, we transmit a message of hope, that everything can be done".

The certain thing is that several of the assistants to the number lived moments of anguish when seeing that the man did not move inside the deposit and they demanded to shouts that the ballot box was opened to remove it of the water.
