French acrobat Nathan Polan crossed the Seine in Paris at an altitude of 70 meters on a rope, which is an impressive feat, which a mass of people observed cheering him on the shores.
Attached to his seat belt, the 27-year-old slowly advanced barefoot on a rope that stretched across the river between the Eiffel Tower and the Sheliot Theater.
He paused for a few breaks, sitting or lying on the rope.
“It wasn’t easy walking 600 meters, concentrating, with this environment, the pressure … but it was still beautiful,” he said after the crossing.
He said it was difficult to get the necessary permits, as well as that he experienced “stress due to the audience, that is, the fact that there are a lot of people.”
Polan, who holds several world records, made the feat as part of the annual French Heritage Day, when he is invited to visit buildings and monuments that are normally closed to the public.
