Russian Daredevil Shocks Neighbors With Clumsy Tightrope Walk

A man's walk on a 10-story-high wire shocks his neighbors -- especially when he nearly falls.

Footage showing a 28-year-old Russian daredevil walking a tightrope stretched between two apartment blocks in the city of Voronezh on Tuesday puts viewers' hearts in their mouths. 

The video was apparently shot on a cell phone camera by one of the onlookers from an apartment’s window. The stuntman seems to be walking without any safety wire. 

Toward the end, the man nearly loses his balance and almost falls, but manages to recover and reaches the end of the rope finishing his journey.

Russian media reports the police found the man and told him to not repeat such stunts, especially without any safety gear.

As absurdly shocking as it is, this is not the first time that such a video has emerged from Russia. A man escaped almost unhurt in a motorbike stunt last August in the country.
