Angelo Faticoni, the Human Cork

We've previously posted about two people who claimed to be "human corks": Norris Kellam and Iver Johnson.

Now I've found a third to add to the list: Angelo Faticoni.

The lives of Kellam and Faticoni overlapped, but I can't find any evidence that they ever met.

It seems the other blokes were mere pretenders, since this guy could do it with a 20-lb. weight and tied to a chair, or sleep in water. "Expert Floater" would have been a good contestant on What's My Line?

He should have used "The Great Floatini" as a showbusiness name.
