Driving on the Edge!


A Chinese man performed a breathtaking stunt by driving a car across two steel cables suspended 150ft above a river.Liu Suozhu, 48, of Henan province, completed the 750ft journey over Miluo River in Pingjiang city, Hunan province.

Liu Suozhu, who is nicknamed the Car King in China, drove the motor from a platform in front of tens of thousands of cheering spectators.During his 30-minute journey, Liu communicated with the performance host via radio, which was broadcast to the audience.

"The cables are a bit shaky, not very stable... the slope is very steep," the showman said, to more cheers from the crowd.Liu says the last few minutes were the most difficult and dangerous because the steep slope blocked his rear view. He stopped several times during the last section of his journey.
