CRISS ANGEL’S THE SUPERNATURALISTS™
TOUR KICK-OFF EVENT
ON THE STREETS OF NEW JERSEY

DEATH-DEFYING SUBMERGED ESCAPE
PERFORMED AT THE STATE THEATRE

New Brunswick, NJ – Yesterday, the State Theatre hosted a death-defying Submerged escape stunt in advance of the upcoming The Supernaturalists™ tour launching this weekend for four performances from September 18-20 at the State Theatre. Supernaturalists show creator Criss Angel was in New Brunswick to introduce the demonstration performed by Spencer Horsman.

Just over 2 and half minutes into the stunt—following the shackling and locking of Spencer’s hands and feet, his submersion into a 30 inch plexiglass cube filled with 100 gallons of water, and then locked by bars across the top of the tank–the stunt’s emcee Landon Swank (also a Supernaturalists performer) addressed the crowd saying that Spencer had hit the dangerous mark of 2.5 minutes where the human body starts to shut down. Soon after, Spencer, who had nearly finished the escape, had trouble with the last lock. It was at this point that the crane quickly lowered the tank (which was suspended from a crane 16 feet above the street, in complete view of the public) and Spencer was pulled out.

New Brunswick EMTs who were on site for this dangerous stunt came to Spencer’s aid and transported the performer to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital for evaluation. Spencer was held for evaluation and tests, and should be released from the hospital later this evening.  Horsman is expected to make a full recovery.

“Thank you to the State Theatre and thousands of people that showed up for this demonstration. I am sorry that the outcome was not as planned, and we continue to await Spencer’s evaluation. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers,” says Criss.

The Supernaturalists™ performances this weekend, September 18-20, will go on as scheduled and Spencer will perform. Whether Submerged will be a part of the show will be at Horsman’s discretion.

“We are thrilled that Criss Angel was able to come to New Brunswick to help kick off the tour of The Supernaturalists™ at the State Theatre,” said Brian O’Boyle, State Theatre Vice President of Programming & Marketing. “We look forward to four exciting shows this weekend with Spencer Horsman and the rest of The Supernaturalists™.”
