Harry Houdini died at age 52 of peritonitis, after he told a college boxer to punch him in the stomach. Houdini collapsed from the blow and began to cough up blood, but still insisted on performing his famed “water trick,” in which he was locked in manacles and hung upside down inside a giant fish tank. He was unable to escape and by the time he was lifted out of the tank, he was in a fatal coma.
He had promised to come back from the grave, so every year, people hold seances to try and contact him.
