Magician feared dead as Houdini-styled river stunt goes wrong

Divers in Kolkata, India, are searching for the body of a magician feared to have drowned when a Houdini-like stunt in a river went wrong. Chanchal Lahiri, 42, known by his stage name of Mandrake, went missing on Sunday after he was lowered into the river, chained inside a small, padlocked cage. He, however, failed to reappear. Lahiri had performed the stunt successfully at least a dozen times.

They've not found a body, he's probably in Area51 or something.
