David Copperfield's rooftop pool bursts, seeps into apartments 30 floors below

Illusionist David Copperfield’s Manhattan rooftop swimming pool did a disappearing act — but it wasn’t a trick. The pool atop Copperfield’s East 57th Street penthouse spontaneously burst and flooded his apartment, seeping into others as far as 30 stories below.

Copperfield’s lawyer, Ted Blumberg, confirmed that a pump for the 57th-floor lap pool malfunctioned, sending water gushing through Copperfield’s four-story, greenhouse-like penthouse at the Galleria that is packed with valuable art and antiques, including vintage arcade pieces from Coney Island.
