Chandigarh, December 8

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.

Paulin was seen walking without holding any protective gear. He had, earlier in 2017, completed a 670-metre walk along a tightrope from Eiffel Tower.
