A Canadian magician rose from the ground after being buried alive for 42 hours for a Halloween stunt. Escape artist Dean Gunnarson was in a steel coffin, and he had a Blackberry device to communicate with fans.

His trick ended Sunday.

Gunnarson's stunt was a tribute to magician Harry Houdini who died on Halloween more than 80 years ago.
