Death defying stunt: Professional Lukas Irmler completes daring slackline crossing
Los Angeles : In a daredevil shot, a professional slackliner Lukas Irmler on Wednesday laid on a rope on the world’s highest freefalling waterfall.
He laid down on a rope with a 1,316ft drop below to the Hunlen Falls in Tweedsmuir South Provincial Park Canada, British Columbia.
After making the record gesture, Lukas said, “This place was a new experience in many ways and spending a full week in this quite and far away place was more than worth all the effort. We rigged three massive Highlines and on top of that a beautiful rope jump and enjoyed our time there to the maximum.”
Kukas has been on globe slacklining track since 2006 and interestingly holds two Guinness World Record titles for his daredevil stunts.
It may be interesting to note that Hunlen Falls are only accessible by floatplane but it was only Kukas who managed the otherwise skill.
In 2016, Luka and Samuel Volery broke the world record for walking the longest tightrope – at a staggering 270m.
Their death defying walk across Mount Pilatus, Switzerland, was made at an incredible 2000m above sea level.
Though the conditions were very difficult and perilous yet they still managed to cross in around 50 minutes through the fog and rain.
