A Chinese tightrope walker Adil Hoshur, together with his assistants, has created a new world record for walking along a 1,400 meter-long wire.
Adil Hoshur, together with two disciples, completed the dangerous 4, 593 foot wire-walk some 350 meters (1,148 feet) above the Dehang canyon, according to Ad Hoc News. The Dehang canyon is located in China's central Hunan Province.
ITN News notes that the three carried out their walk without any safety nets being in place and they did not stop along the way.
The Dehang canyon is the location of the Aizhai Bridge, which is a suspension bridge on the G65 Baotou–Maoming Expressway near Jishou, Hunan, China. According to The Independent, the bridge is the sixth-highest bridge in the world and the world's twelfth-longest suspension bridge.
