I will tell you right now, there are serious dangers to the mik can escape. The main one being drowning.

If you do this effect, you NEED a few assistants who

A. Have a set of signals set up with you on whether or not you are ok.
B. Can get you out of the bloody thing if something goes wrong.
and
C. Are trustworthy.

There are serious dangers to doing ANY escape under water. Just make sure you have a crew that can save if you you know what hits the fan.

Be safe,
JCH

I have checked into it. What I found out is that I would have to have one made. I would suggest that anyway. That way it can be made specifically for youe and your size. It should be made of galvanized sheet metal. If you are lucky, you may know somebody at a sheet metal shop that can help you.
I also agree with "be safe". However the milk can is a good escape with verry little chance of drowning. People actually die of hypoxia first, then their lungs fill with water. That is something to be considered and can be remedied if you have your can built for you.

you have to get them specially made. i know where you can get one and the prices if you want to know. "They are NOT CHEAP!!!!"
but it is well worth the cost and practice.

Hello

I performed the milk can for the W.E.A.R. event last October. It received a great response from the audience and the press. It is a real crowd pleaser. But it is still only a prop. The music and the atmosphere must be right.

I practised and planned for any kind of error.Do not eat spicy foods before the show!!!!!!! Indigestion or gas will make it difficult to take a full deep breath.

My female partner Dayle performed the Water Torture Tank while locked in a steel strait jacket. The press loved this escape even more then the milk can. It was so much more picture worthy. Water escapes are alive and well . We perform with a giant second hand timer clock and it sure helps to build the tension.
