How many of you would be willing to jump into a cold, frigid river?  OK, how many would do it with handcuffs on?  Harry Houdini was a famous escape artist.  He loved thrilling the crowd with impossible escapes.  On this day, he is going to jump into the icy Boston River fully handcuffed.  As the crowds gasp and worry about his safety, we get to see what is going on underneath the water.  Join Harry as he escapes once again.
