Daredevil falls from 1,000m tightrope in stomach-turning VIDEO

Daredevil falls from 1,000m tightrope in stomach-turning VIDEO
A Norwegian daredevil had a shocking close call when he slipped during a death-defying walk on a tightrope suspended 1,000 meters high above two cliffs in Kjerag, Norway.

Drone footage shows the moment Espen Hatleskog loses his balance on the tightrope and tumbles off into a terrifying plunge. Luckily, his safety rope saves him from plummeting back to earth, and he is left suspended in the air.

After pulling himself back onto the tightrope, Hatleskog sits for a few minutes before standing up again and valiantly continuing on his wobbly path to the other side.
