Host Steve Inskeep speaks with Damian Barr, a commentator from the Times of London, about the descent of David Blaine from the plastic box suspended above the Thames River where he has spent the last 44 days, living on only water. Blaine has performed many spectacular stunts in the past, including suspension in an ice block.
