Israeli magician thawing out


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli magician has broken the world record for time spent in a sub-zero ice cube.

Hezi Dayan, 29, emerged at midnight on Friday morning after staying in the 8-ton cube on public display in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square for 64 hours. He was reportedly taken immediately to a nearby hospital.

Dayan broke the record of American magician David Blaine, who spent 58 hours in an ice cube in 2000 in New York’s Times Square.
