During the rehearsal of upcoming illusionist show Supernaturalists, one of the acts went extremely wrong. Peformer Spencer Horsman lost consciousness while being imprisoned and motionless in a tank full of water hanging 30 feet above a stage.
Crew members and one other magician, Criss Angel, ran to save the life of Spencer Horsman.
