He spent 44 days suspended from a glass box by the River Thames in London. He was buried alive for a week in a see-through coffin in New York City. Now, he's held his breath longer than anyone underwater.

Magician David Blaine's latest feat of endurance was to break the current world record of holding one's breath underwater live in front of Oprah's studio audience.

Blaine held his breath underwater for 17 minutes and 4 seconds -- beating the current world record of 16 minutes and 32 seconds, a record set Feb. 10 by Switzerland's Peter Colat, according to Guinness World Records.
