Chinese Acrobat Survives 200-meter Fall
Posted on July 19, 2012
Have you ever watched a high wire act, in which the acrobat walks on a rope or cable suspended high from the ground? These are very entertaining, but one has to remember that these are human beings performing these incredible feats.
And human beings are prone to making mistakes…BIG mistakes.
Luckily for Aisikaier, a Chinese Dawa Zi acrobat, after falling 200 meters from a high wire, he walked away with only minor injuries.
Aisikaier was attempting to walk backward across a ravine in Hunan Province, while blindfolded, when he lost his footing. He was only 40 meters from finishing the 700-meter walk.
