Magician-daredevil David Blaine has finished his latest stunt: hanging upside-down without a net high over Central Park for 60 hours. Oh, he's caught a bullet in his mouth, too.

The endurance artist began dangling from a wire over the Wollman skating rink on Monday. He kept smiling while describing the "enormous push of blood" that made it feel as though his head was "about to explode."

He celebrated completion of the wire act Wednesday night by diving from a platform 44 feet to the ground while attached to a harness.

A two-hour ABC television special called "David Blaine: Dive of Death" also showed footage of him catching a .22-calibre bullet fired from a rifle into a metal cup in his mouth.
