A New York rabbi is trying to break the world’s record for being frozen alive. Rabbi Abraham Abraham placed himself in 12 tons of ice without food or drink on the Coney Island boardwalk Thursday, according to the New York Post. Abraham hopes to remain in the ice for 72 hours, which would break magician David Blaine’s record of 61 hours set last year.
