Escape Artist Pulls Off Locked Coffin Skydive
Anthony Martin waved to a crowd after landing softly Tuesday in a field in Serena, Ill., about 70 miles southwest of Chicago.
He says after freeing himself, he watched the box plummet to the ground. He first performed the stunt 25 years ago.
The 47-year-old Wisconsin man was locked in the casket with his hands cuffed to a belt and his right arm chained to the inside of the box.
Two skydivers held the outside of the box to help steady it as Martin tried to escape from it.
