A few months ago I had set up a houdini style upsidedown straight jacket escape with the owner of a local club. Four days before the show we ran into legal conflicts due to the safety of the beam I was to be hanging by. (an industrial grade winch was purchased to raise me about 100 ft in the air).
Very last minute I devised an escape that I can't seem to find documentation of someone else doing. I was straightjacketed and then put into a thick plastic mattress bag (the kind a new mattress is sealed in when purchasing). I must admit, this was extremely dumb considering the time frame and danger. While I had two paramedics standing by (legit) I had not taken into effect the humidity of a mid august night and how that effects moisture in a sealed bag. It was like taking off a wet shirt times 1000.
I did get out and posted it to youtube. I am always looking for some new and exciting challenge and I look forward to people checking it out and giving me feedback.

Note: the video is not professional quality, just a shot a person in the crowd forwarded to me.

Wow, great escape. It looks so dangerous. I would think that you had trouble breathing in the bag. I also liked how you held the bag up at the end as victory :)

Thanks! It was verrry dangerous. We had been practicing for months for upsidedown escape.. the bag escape was pt together in under 4 days.. started with 55 gallon trash bags but those kept tearing. I also practiced indoors so not having AC made it very difficult lol.
The blast of cool air when I cut open the bag was one of the best feelings. out of the 250+ people there, I know at least a few were in tears.. the Rocky victory arm thrust was an "in the moment" decision that added a positive ending to an emotional rollercoaster experience.
Thanks for checkin it out and leaving a comment! Do you do escapes?
