NEW YORK -- Daredevil David Blaine has finished what could be called his most electrifying stunt.

The magician emerged shortly before 9 p.m. Monday after spending three days and three nights standing in the middle of 1 million volts of electric currents at New York's Pier 54.

A spokesman says Blaine was able to walk with assistance, speak and kiss fiancée Alizee Guinochet (ah-LEE'-zay gwee-noh-SHAY') before being taken to a hospital to be examined.

The 39-year-old Blaine wore a chainmail bodysuit as a barrier between himself and the currents, emitted by Tesla coils.

The stunt was called "Electrified: One Million Volts Always On." It was streamed on YouTube, with help from Intel Corp.

Blaine's past stunts include hanging upside down over Central Park and being encased in a block of ice.
