Do you think Lucas makes getting out of a straitjacket look easy? Find out what happens when Lucas attempts to teach an average Joe (Andrew Younghusband) how to escape from a straitjacket. He quickly finds out, it's "Tougher Than it Looks!"
After Lucas completed his first two Official Guinness World Records™, he had prepared for his biggest challenge yet. Ever since Lucas was young, he had a fear of drowning in water, his whole life, he didn't go swimming at the beach or in pools. In 2013 Lucas faced that fear head on as he attempted to break the Official Guinness World Record™ for Fastest Escape from a Straitjacket Underwater. Escaping from a straitjacket underwater was something that Houdini didn't even try because it was too dangerous. Guinness World Records™ created this record just for Lucas and gave him a time of 40 seconds to beat. In late 2013 in Yellowknife, Lucas managed to break that record TWICE in one day. He wasn't finished there, in July of 2014 he appear on Lo Show dei Record in Italy and broke the record one more time, giving him a final record time of 22.86 seconds. Watch his appearance on Lo Show Dei Record below.
