Polish magician's illusion on live TV goes wrong–show host impales hand on 6-inch nail

Polish illusionist Marcin Poloniewicz, a semi-finalist on Poland’s Got Talent television show, appeared live on Polish national TV’s Saturday morning show Pytanie Na Sniadanie (i.e. Question for Breakfast) where he demonstrated his latest magic trick to viewers across Poland.  Unfortunately, his trick went tragically wrong.

First, Poloniewicz made sure show host Marzena Rogalska knew that the 6-inch nail used in the magic trick was indeed real.

First, Poloniewicz made sure show host Marzena Rogalska saw that the 6-inch nail used in the trick was indeed real.

 

She touched the tip of the nail (yes, it was real).  Then Poloniewicz asked her, “Hey, how would you like to risk impaling your hand on a nail?”  She reluctantly agreed.

Then he asked her, "Hey, how would you like to risk impaling your hand on a nail?"

 

The trick involved placing the nail through a small piece of wood to ensure the nail would stand upright.  Then nail was then placed in a paper bag and the paper bag sealed.

Then nail was then placed in a paper bag.

The bag was placed with three empty bags and all were shuffled.

The bags were shuffled.

Then Poloniewicz showed how the trick was *supposed* to work.  He chose a “random” bag and smashed it with full force.  He was unharmed.

Now it was the show’s host turn to show her mettle.  Marzena however, did not get to pick a bag – Poloniewicz chose one for her.

Now it was the show's host turn to show her mettle.

Poloniewicz placed his hand over hers and forcefully crushed a second “random” bag using her hand.  This time however, the magic trick went awry.  As Marzena withdrew her hand, TV audiences could clearly see the 6-inch nail protruding through her right hand.

This time however, his magic trick went awry.

Marzena was clearly not impressed with the trick.  She grimaced, turned from the camera and screamed (over and over again), “Oww Wee, Oww Wee”.

She was clearly not impressed with the trick and in great pain.

Poloniewicz stared at the camera with a grim look on his face and exclaimed, “F*#k, I’m sorry”.

Poloniewicz stared at the camera with a grim look on his face and exlaimed, "F*#k, I'm sorry".

Marzena crumbled to the ground while Poloniewicz explained to the audience that he had done this trick a dozen times and this had never happened before.

Marzena crumbled to the ground.

Marzena was quickly ushered offstage where she received on-site medical attention before being taken to a nearby hospital.
