It must have given, if not him, then the people watching him the adrenaline rush.

Nathan Paulin, a French slackliner, completed a 500-metre walk along a tightrope. He walked between Babilonia Hill and Urca Hill in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro 264 feet above the air.

It took Paulin half an hour-an-hour to cover the distance.

A French daredevil crossed between Babilonia Hill and Urca Hill in Rio de Janeiro on a bridge of webbing – known as a slackline.
