VIDEO: Chinese acrobat falls, no safety gear, tightrope walking 200 metre gulley

Monday 9 Jul 2012 8:46 a.m.

Who would have thought walking backwards - blindfolded - on a tightrope could be a bad idea?

Certainly not this Chinese acrobat who took no safety precautions other than a six metre pole for balance.

He'd been walking 50 minutes before his slip fortunately the drop wasn't the full 200 metres - and the lucky tightrope walker was able to walk away.

Watch the video for the incident.
