Daniel Madison’s endurance stunt Hunger has ended with a trip to the hospital.

Joe from the Ellusionist blog has did a great job recapping the event, but the short version is as follows.

After cutting down his calories to 2,000 a week, Madison began to feel invincible. That is right up until he became enraged, destroyed his personal diary, all video recordings of his progress and was about to make himself a pizza. However, he calmed down and continued.

Then, on November 11 Madison was admitted to a local hospital after collapsing five times in the previous seven days. The entire starvation lasted 39 days.

We hope he makes a speedy recovery. And finally eats that pizza.

    From what I've seen of his clips on T11, he seems to be a pretty decent magician. Why attempt something like this? I don't see what the entertainment value is. Was he doing this for some cause or to make a statement? Or is British food REALLY that bad?
