The ice man cometh.

China’s Chen Kecai astounded tourists in the city of Xiamen by enduring more than 108 minutes in an ice-filled container.

Dubbed the ‚magic ice man‘, Chen says he has been indulging in ice baths for the last 20 years.

[Chen Kecai, “Magic Ice Man”]:

„Back at home I would sit in a hole dug in the snow for a while or go walking back and forth in the snow. After doing that, with no clothes on, I would also go walking around in the cold air.“

Chen comes from the northern province of Harbin, and is used to a wintry climate.

But for those in southern Fujian province, the spectacle left them with a chill.

[Unidentified Tourist]:

„We’re wearing so many clothes and still think it’s really cold. We really admire him. People should definitely come see this. I didn’t believe it at first but now seeing is believing.“

According to Chinese media, Chen set a Guinness World Record last month by standing in ice, half naked, for 112 minutes.
