In a phone call today with Kevin Ridgeway, he made us aware of the fact that a video of Kristen's close call during a presentation of her visible water torture escape was posted on online. Kevin told me, "Kristen suffered an hypoxic seizure after freeing herselfe from one of the restrains. She wasn't feeling well earlier in the day, but that seems to have been low blood sugar. We've staged that escape 599 times and had only one other incident which is a very good track record. The video of the incident has surfaced online, but it's pretty disturbing to watch. Please remind your readers that Kristen is performing the exact escape that we're discussing on the next episode of Masters of Illusion."   ANOTHER ANGLE ON THE ALMOST ACCIDENT :: HERE'S A VIDEO OF THE EFFECT AS KRISTEN REGULARLY PERFORMS IT ::
