Acrobats perform for Swiss ski resort reopening

The 'Wheel of Death'

was part of a performance

on the edge of a mountain

to mark the reopening of a ski resort

Location: Les Diablerets, Switzerland

Acrobat Freddy Nock walked blind-folded

and rode a bike

at an altitude of over 9,800 ft

breaking three balancing records

The spectacular show hopes to highlight

the struggles artists are facing

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SWISS ACROBAT, FREDDY NOCK, SAYING:"In this situation I have many feelings. Now, we stress for consideration, think about the situation. Yes, that is what we do here, it is for the artists, give a message. And, yes, got too many thoughts through the head now, for the future, what will happen after. But we think positive and that is why we are happy."
