Magician says he shipped himself from NY to Vegas

Magician says he shipped himself from NY to Vegas

Federal authorities are investigating a professional magician's claim that he successfully shipped himself in a crate from upstate New York to Las Vegas by the United Parcel Service.
A spokesman for UPS says the company believes Wade Whitcomb's claim is a hoax. The Transportation Security Administration and the FBI are investigating Whitcomb's claim.
Whitcomb is a professional magician from North Syracuse who says he shipped himself to Las Vegas in November as a publicity stunt to promote a friend's new Web site.
Whitcomb says he traveled in a custom-made crate and videotaped the trip with four cameras pointed out of the crate and another inside.
Whitcomb told The Associated Press on Tuesday that his lawyer told him not to talk to the media.
