Caroline Hutchinson - the brave and death defying half of 92.7 Mix FM's Mark and Caroline for breakfast - is about to put her life at possible risk. The local identity is set to enter the dangerous, spike-filled 'Crazy Cell' with touring illusionist 'Cosentino' on Thursday morning. Caroline will perform the dare devil stunt if $10,000 is raised for the children's charity Variety by Tuesday morning.

As a major part of Cosentino's touring show Threshold, the Crazy Cell is a device that will see Cosentino and Caroline padlocked inside a padded perspex 2x2metre cell. Caroline will be shackled to the back wall with leg irons while her rescuer Cosentino will be in a straitjacket.
There are 32 metal spikes measuring 250 x 25mm connected to a rope above the cell and the rope will be set on fire.
The challenge is for Cosentino to release himself from the straitjacket, free Caroline from the shackles, pick the lock on the door and get them both out of the Crazy Cell before the spikes fall and impale them both!!

Will $10,000 be raised for Variety…?

Will Caroline go through with the challenge...?

Will she survive the Crazy Cell…?
