A wooden box was wheeled out onstage. The assistant kicked her shoes off and got into it, and it was closed up.

The magician began piecing long thin swords into the box. He put a total of 10 of them in it. He kept them there for about a minute, then he took them out again, one at a time.

The swords were covered in blood!

The audience gasped and screamed; however, the magician quietly continued, as if there was nothing wrong.

Finally, he took the last sword out and opened the box. He then helped the girl out.

She was covered in a red liquid, but was otherwise all right.

A glass tank of water was quickly wheeled onstage. She got into it, washed the 'blood' off, and got out.

The band played a 'ta da!," and the audience cheered.
