Magician David Blaine may give up on his ABOVE THE BELOW stunt - even though he has only four days to go.

The American had vowed to spend 44 days in a Perspex box suspended above London's River Thames without food or human contact.

He's made it this far despite becoming the target of a hate campaign from irate locals, but last night (15OCT03) Blaine's medical team warned his health is fading fast.

Blaine's chief medical officer PAUL KENNY says, "He has serious breathing problems and palpitations. It's very worrying."

The New Yorker's girlfriend MANON VON GERKAN, 30, is also said to be concerned about his physical state.
