Chinese acrobat Dawa Zi acrobat was apparently attempting to walk backwards across a ravine in Hunan Province while blindfolded. Even though he’s a sixth generation acrobat, early on you can see that things aren’t going well.

He was reportedly just 40 meters near the end of the 700 meter walk when he lost it, falling 200  a reported meters as cameras rolled. What’s shocking, aside from the fall itself, is that you later see him walking back up the cliff. Wha?!? He escaped with only minor injuries.
