The dramatic scene unfolded on Tuesday afternoon in front of the State Theatre in New Brunswick, New Jersey during a promotion for an upcoming show featuring magician Criss Angel.

Horsman was in the box for about two-and-a-half minutes but was unable to get the last lock, according to reports.

Horsman told INSIDE EDITION: "I am not going to disappoint the audience by quitting. I am currently in conversation right now with Criss in regards to maybe modifying the escape, even possibly postponing it. Everyone's concern is my safety, so, is mine, of course. I am still very adamant about performing this." 

It's the second time Horsman had to be rescued from a tank. In June, the same thing happened at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut and Angel had to come to his rescue.

“He kind of went limp and I knew he was in trouble,” Criss Angel told INSIDE EDITION after the first mishap.
