David Copperfield has sawed himself in half and walked through the Great Wall of China, but the famed illusionist was still a little worried when his New York-bound plane made an emergency landing in Peoria, Ill., Monday morning.
Copperfield was on his way to the Big Apple for a "Today" show appearance when a "loud noise" forced the flight crew to make an emergency landing. The magician fired tweets from the plane that described the experience as "so scary."
Everyone is ok. Emergency landing in Peoria, Illinois. So scary.
