VIDEO: Tightrope Walker Falls During Stunt
A tightrope walker is lucky he’s only slightly hurt after falling during a stunt.
An acrobat in Central China was tightrope walking backwards while blindfolded. At one point, he slipped but got back up and kept walking. Later, he slipped again, and this time fell from the rope. He was near one of the ends of the rope, which means he fell about 13 feet.
Fortunately, the acrobat suffered just minor injuries. He had walked for 50 minutes and said he felt faint and that the wind blew him over.
