It’s a thin line between life and death in these daring stunts. Maybe it’s the adrenaline that motivates these daredevils, or perhaps it’s just a goal they must conquer. A Chinese man was the latest to join the high-flying league on Saturday. You’ve gotta watch these stuntmen teeter sky high on their tiny tightropes across buildings, hot air balloons and the twin towers.
Tightrope walker falls – A Chinese man walks a steel line suspended between two hot air balloons, when he loses his balance. Watch what happens next.
A daring legacy – Nik Wallenda attempts a stunt that killed his great-grandfather in 1978 by trying to walk a tightrope between two Puerto Rican hotel towers. High-wire walking may be in his blood, as his heritage includes generations of daredevils.
Teetering between the twin towers – It was his mission and obsession. After other high-profile stunts, Philippe Petit had his sights set on walking a wire between the World Trade Center Towers. He and his team had to sneak wire into the towers to set up for the stunt.
I COULD DO THAT... and juggle at the same time...
As long as they don't land on me, or anyone I care about, go for it.
Bah. I once worked through a community filled with minorities.
Now that's scary!
He had a safety wire attached to the rope (Yelling)!!!!! He wouldn't have died if he fell completely off. He would have hung there like my D****. Reporters are so stupid.
Exactly what I was thinking. I was amazed that no one seemed to point hat out. Honestly, I know at least 10 people who wouldn't blink an eye at trying this as long as they had a tether. And they wouldn't need a balancing pole. A quick search for "slackline" will turn up some truly scary traverse videos.
