Escape artist

Melbourne escape artist 'Cosentino' is surrounded by sharks and fish as he attempts to free himself after being handcuffed and shackled to a 60 kilogram concrete block inside a tank at Melbourne Aquarium, on February 17, 2010. 'Cosentino' mirrored a feat attempted by the legendary Harry Houdini who 100 years ago to the day jumped off Queen's Bridge into the Yarra River, shackled from his neck to his waist. The 27-year-old magician and escape artist was aiming to do the trick in a time of 2 minutes and 30 seconds but struggled to unlock one of the shackles and finished in 3 minutes and 39 seconds.
