David Blaine, a 49-year-old illusionist, opened his David Blain: In Spades show in Las Vegas at the Resorts World Theatre by jumping from a nine-story height into a pile of cardboard. The illusionist landed the wrong way and dislocated his right shoulder.


Blaine posted a video of EMS and crew members attempting to relocate his arm on his Instagram, captioning it, “Wow that hurt!”

A statement from Resorts World said, “Mr. Blaine was treated by doctors from the audience on stage in front of the assembled crowd, where they successfully relocated his right arm, as he experienced extreme pain and discomfort. After a short delay, Blaine was able to continue with the show, in pain, but in good humor.”

Blaine is known for his death-defying stunts, and even after the rocky start to the show, he received a standing ovation from the audience.
