Meet Heather Holliday, one of the most unusual sword swallowers in the world. Heather grew up in New York as a follower of Mormonism. At the age of 17, she began an internship at a circus on Coney Island and trained to swallow swords, but she got so carried away that she soon learned to stick up to 60 centimeters of steel into her body, as well as neon lamps and even fire.

The girl is only 158 centimeters tall, but she does something that takes the breath away from the audience. She has a lot of tattoos and bright costumes, and now Heather, with her non-standard sword-swallowing skills, has gone quite far from observing the traditions of Mormon upbringing.
