Cape Town – Master magician David Blaine is well known for his death defying tricks. 

He has been buried alive, frozen in time and stood on a pillar 30 metres high for 35 hours.

For his new ABC show Beyond Magic he prepared a twist on his original stunt bullet catch, in which he catches a bullet in his month. 

This time around however, he pulled the trigger himself. 

Things didn't go as planned though as the bullet snapped the protective mouth guard in half which hit him in the back of the throat resulting in a laceration.

Despite the act going wrong he says he will do the trick in his live tour.
