Adventures With Ahtra: Eating Fire
WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT ANYTHING IN THIS VIDEO
SIOUX FALLS, S.D.- There’s no other way to describe a performance by magician Travis Nye other than crazy. He’s a polished professional but is a self-taught fire-eater, and the process came with plenty of trial and error.
“There was lots of burning my hands, stuff like that, constantly, singed and burned taste buds, having no taste, pretty much losing my taste for quite a while,” says Nye.
Nye says breathing is the most important thing when eating fire. If you put fire in your mouth and inhale, the heat will go down your lung, causing it to collapse and you will die.
To see how it’s done, watch the video above. For more on magician Travis Nye, click here.
