Watch: A death-defying world record

On 2 August 2015, Spencer Seabrooke attempted something surely no-one ever will again. He tried to break the world record for a free solo slackline. Put simply, he had to tightrope 64 metres through the sky without any harnesses or safety equipment.

So, watch in disbelief below as Spencer crosses a near 290 metre ravine between two cliffs in British Columbia with only a rope to protect him. And watch as he falls twice, but keeps going…

Will anyone try and beat this insane record in the future?
