David Copperfield has a private pool in his 8,000-square-foot Manhattan apartment—something all of his neighbors are now well aware of because he managed to flood the entire building with it this week.

"The pump malfunctioned, and the entire pool drained through David's apartment and apartments below, right to the basement. Walls and floors were completely soaked," Copperfield's lawyer tells Page Six.

But enough about the soggy neighbors—what about his rare, vintage Coney Island machines?

"David was terrified, because he has these rare, vintage Coney Island machines, which are priceless, irreplaceable antiques, including a fortune teller, strength testers, an electric shock machine and shooting galleries. But for some unknown reason — or stroke of luck — these machines were spared by the water. There's a magic trick called 'The Bullet Catch,' where the illusionist catches the bullet in his teeth, and David thinks he really dodged a bullet here."
