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 King,of Escapes is about to do one of his famous bridge jumps. In his escape, he was restrained with a single five-foot chain with three padlocks and a pair of handcuffs. Compare his restraints to Alex's restraints. Here Alexanderia the Great is secured in 25 feet of chain 7 padlocks wrapped tight to her neck and secured in handcuffs, leg cuffs and a 15 lead weight belt attached to her body. To make this escape even more thrilling, she blow her air out before she hit the water thus attempting to escape all her restraints with whatever oxygen remains in her lungs. Harry Houdini used to say "Failure means a drowning death". In the Alex's case he could not be more correct. At least Harry had less restraints and lugs full of air. Is it just me or did Harry have it easy compared to the Queen of Extreme?
CAUTION: Alexanderia the Great is a trained professional. Do not attempt these escapes yourself.
