Samat Hasan, a 24-year-old stuntman from China’s farwest Xinjiang region, walks on a tightrope across a valley in the tourist spot of Zhangjiajie, Hunan province on April 25, 2009. Hasan makes it across a 700-metre-long (2,300 feet) rope on a 39-degree gradient, to successfully break the Guinness World Record for aerial tightrope walking after failing in a previous attempt in October 2008.
