SHARE


We have read about them in books and watched them in movies and on television. We watch them perform spectacularly breathtaking feats at the circus, and our children pretend to be them when they play. Tightrope daredevils are some of the most interestingly death-defying individuals on the face of the earth, taking on gravity and common sense to accomplish the seemingly impossible. Here we will talk about ten of the craziest tightrope daredevils and their stunts in the history of mankind. You will be blown away!

1. Father Jerome Lloyd

To raise funds for the Sussex Beacon charity, which focuses on assisting individuals livings with HIV and AIDS, this priest walked the wire over 80 feet in the air with absolutely no safety gear. Father Lloyd was initially going to be carried on the back of another who was going to do the walking, but unable to make the proper equipment adaptations for his weight, he decided to go it alone. He even wore his priestly garb to carry the stunt out.

In an attempt to break a Guinness World Record by crossing a steel cable which spanned from Monte Tossal to the Great Bali Hotel, Mustafa Danger rode a motorcycle. This was a failed try, however, bombing out only a short distance from the end of the stunt. Danger was more than one kilometer in and had nearly completed the feat, which took place over 186 meters in the air.
