VIDEO: Chinese high-wire walker left dangling 300 feet in the air

A Chinese high-wire artist lost his footing as he attempted to walk across a tightrope 100m above the ground - with no safety net.

Strong winds left Saimaiti Aishan dramatically clinging on to the 15m-long steel wire in front of stunned onlookers in China's Hunan Province.
The wire was attached to two hot air balloons - which were affected by the wind force and direction.
After successfully walking across the wire at 30m in just five minutes, Saimaiti took on the 100m challenge.
But the balloons slowly fell down to the ground and Saimaiti Aishan failed the challenge.
'Dawazi' - or high-wire walking - is a traditional folk stunt with a long history in Xinjiang, China.
