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."
