  • Greater Boston with Emily Rooney said “She can get out of practically anything”
  • Holder of 6 world records

Alexanderia the Great aka Donna Purnell is a world class escape artist and one of the few women in the world willing to attempt such death defying escapes.  Whether its setting world records on TV, training to the extreme or fighting to extricate herself from chains, shackles, handcuffs, strait jackets or rope from dangerous situations like the bottom of a deep pool or her very own Underwater Cell (UC), you can count on Alex to do something breath-taking
Here Harry Houdini, The Escape King, is about to do one of his famous bridge jumps.  In his escape, he was restrained with a single five-foot chain with one padlock and a pair of handcuffs.  Compare his restraints to Alex's restraints.   Here Alexanderia the Great  is in what is called a chain straitjacket with an additional 25 feet of chains wrapped around her body and shackles around her ankles.  A chain is padlocked to her ankle restraints and another padlock to the chains around her body to be sure she cannot get to the surface.  She is secured with total of 8 padlocks and weighted down with a 15 lb lead weight belt around her waist.  All totaled, the Queen of Extreme, must extricate myself from the bottom of a pool held down by a staggering 55lbs of chains, shackles, padlocks and lead weight.  She must get out of all of these restraints in one breath or as Harry Houdini used to say "Failure means a drowning death".  Is it just me or did Harry have it easy? 
CAUTION:  Alexanderia the Great is a trained professional.  Do not attempt these escapes yourself.
