Earlier this month, Lucas Wilson of Port Dover, Ontario, Canada achieved a new Guinness World Record for the fastest escape from a straitjacket and chains while suspended upside down.

Moments before country music star George Canyon played for an audience of 3,000 at the Nofolk County Fair, Lucas made his final successful escape of the day in 19.2 seconds.

The 21-year-old made three attempts throughout the day each surpassing Mr. Straitjacket's existing record of 54.24 seconds set in the UK in 2006.

Lucas' first two escapes of 39 and 29 seconds were briefly Guinness World Records.

Earlier in the day a Guinness World Record adjudicator had made a thorough examination of the chains and straitjacket, weighed Lucas and measured his chest to ensure the straitjacket met the regulations and guidelines for the record category.

Immediately after the final successful attempt, a new Guinness World Record certificate was presented to Lucas.
