LOST MAGIC DECODED

         Did you know that twelve famous magicians performed an illusion called The Bullet Catch? Did you know that none of them survived? Lost Magic Decoded, a programme shown on the History Channel October 20, 2013, showed all sorts of captivating facts about this illusion. In this magic trick, someone stands twenty feet away from a person holding a gun. The person with the gun shoots a bullet that the magician tries to catch with his bare hands. I discovered that a magician named Chun Ling Soo attempted this performance in 1918, but there was an error during the preparation and he died from a severe bullet wound to the chest. On the television programme, I watched a man named Steve Cohen try this trick. Instead of using his hands, he caught the bullet with his mouth! A glass shard punctured him in the chest and the wound did not heal for three weeks, but he survived. Lost Magic Decoded was an innovative progamme about an amazing trick. (Sarah in grade eight)
