P. C. Sorcar
It’s not always the trick itself that takes the life of its performer. Magician P. C. Sorcar was successful in the Asian circuit, and on January 6th, 1971, he was performing his normal show of wonders and amazement. During the show at Ashaikawa, Hokkaido in Japan, something terrible happened. Sorcar suffered a heart attack on stage and died suddenly. Sorcar was known for stepping outside of the magician’s box, even going so far as to create his own illusions known as Ind-Dra-Jal. The legend of the great magician was lived on by his sons, P. C. Sorcar, Jr. and P. C. Sorcar, Young.
