American magician David Blaine came out unscathed after spending three days and three nights standing in the middle of a million volts of electric currents at New York's Pier 54.

A spokesman said that the 39-year-old illusionist was able to walk with assistance, speak and kiss fiancee Alizee Guinochet before he was taken to a hospital for examination, the Daily Express reported.

Blaine donned a chainmail bodysuit, as a barricade between himself and the currents that were emitted by Tesla coils.

The stunt - called 'Electrified: One Million Volts Always On' - was streamed live on the video sharing website YouTube with help from Intel. (ANI)
