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.

Magician David Blaine's latest feat of endurance likely will last less than 17 minutes, but he's planning to do it in front of talk show queen Oprah Winfrey -- and her audience of millions.

Blaine will try to break the world record for breath-holding during this morning's live broadcast of ''The Oprah Winfrey Show,'' less than two years after going into convulsions during a similar attempt.

The time he has to beat is 16 minutes and 32 seconds, a record set Feb. 10 by Switzerland's Peter Colat, according to Guinness World Records. AP
