NEW YORK - Magician-daredevil David Blaine has safely finished his latest stunt: hanging upside-down without a net high over Central Park for 60 hours.

Oh, he's caught a bullet in his mouth, too.

The endurance artist began dangling from a wire over a park skating rink on Monday. He kept smiling while describing the "enormous push of blood" that made it feel as though his head was "about to explode."

He celebrated completion of the wire act Wednesday night by diving from a platform 44 feet to the ground while attached to a harness.

A two-hour ABC television special called "David Blaine: Dive of Death" also showed footage of him catching a .22-calibre rifle bullet in a metal cup in his mouth.
