"That's an awful river."

I've shared on my Patreon a vivid account of Houdini's handcuffed leap into the Mississippi River on November 17, 1907. There are details here that I've not read before. Dive in by clicking below. 

I recently updated my Bridge jumps page to list all of Houdini's known jumps. Thanks to my patrons for supporting this work.

  1. Requesting the leg irons before the jump was a nice touch, but I've never seen a film or photo of HH jumping with leg irons. That would have been suicide.
