A magic escape artist who didn't escape, this time:

(CNN)Indian police have recovered the body of a stuntman who went missing in the Hooghly River Sunday while attempting a daredevil trick, authorities confirmed. 

Chanchal Lahiri, 40 -- better known by his stage name "Jadugar Mandrake", or "Wizard Mandrake" -- was undertaking an escape stunt near the Howrah Bridge in Kolkata, where he was tied up with steel chains and rope and lowered into the water. 
He was expected to free himself and swim to the surface as he had done many times before. Yet worried spectators, which included team members and his family, launched a frantic search along the banks of the river after he failed to emerge 30 minutes later. 
Before being lowered into the water, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported that Lahiri told the crowd: "If I can open it up then it will be magic, but if I can't it will be tragic.

Heavily polluted river. No doubt asphyxiation played a large part in this tragic failure escapist trick.

The karma of fucking around with drowning.

Its one of those stealth horrid-ways-to-fucking-die, should be up near the top. A couple short minutes of sheer insane mind terror followed by a desperate lights out. We know its bad because of water boarding, amongst other things.

Obviously the escape artist doesn't pay attention to celestial weather. Mercury conjunct Mars/Mercury oppose Pluto/Mars oppose Pluto is
a time for something to go really wrong.

I don't know if planetary alignments do anything but block your view of some of the eclipsed bodies...but stupidity can sure shorten a man's life.
