Fun at 1600 meters!
A tightrope walker in China has broken a world record after crossing a wire suspended 1,607 meters above sea level.

As if that isn’t hairraising enough, this video also captures the moment Ahdili Wuxiuer broke a second world record by climbing over his pupil Saddar in the middle of the wire.

(video after jump…)


The daring duo, from China, hadn’t worked out how they would pass each other at such a great height, and after a tense few moments the tightrope star eventually climbed over Saddar’s chest.

Members of the crowd couldn’t watch at points during the terrifying world record attempts.
