Criss Angel Freaks Out His Mom

CLEARWATER, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Illusionist Criss Angel freaks his mom out so much, he’s vowed to stop doing high-risk stunts.

But first, he’s going to squeeze in one more death defying act.

On July 30, the Mindfreak star will attempt to escape the Spyglass Resort in Clearwater, Florida, before it implodes in front of a live audience.

He’ll be shackled and handcuffed on the seventh story of the building’s balcony and will have about three minutes and 30 seconds to pick the locks, run up several flights of stairs, hop on a hovering helicopter, and fly away from the building before it blows up.

Angel says this is the “biggest, baddest, most dangerous” escape he’s ever pulled, and he may not make it out alive.

But if he does, he’s already promised his mother that this is his last “big escape.”

He says, “I don’t want to put her through this anymore. She gets very worried when I do this stuff.”

Angel has been rehearsing until the wee hours, lock picking and running around the building.

His antics air in the first-ever live Mindfreak episode, July 30 on A&E.
