  • Trivia

    • In 1984, while practising an escape from a tank of water, he became entangled in the chains restraining him, was unable to escape, and began to take in water. He was pulled from the tank by his assistants after 80 seconds, suffering from shock, and rushed to hospital. Following this incident, he had to spend a week in a wheelchair due to pulled tendons in his arms and legs, and then had to walk with a cane for several more weeks afterwards.
