Don't look down! China's 'Prince of Tightrope Walking' crosses Pearl River


China's 'Prince of Tightrope Walking' has shown just why he is worthy of his name after he performed a series of death-defying stunts over the Pearl River in Guangdong Province.

Adili Wuxor walked across the river on a rope strung over 1,000 metres above the ground without the use of any harnesses and only using a pole to help him keep balance.

The 32-year-old even danced some of the way across the thee centimetre-wide rope and at one point performed a stunt with his student as he walked over him.
