Swiss acrobat Freddy Nock walked on a cable car in Switzerland at the height of more than 10,000 ft on Saturday, apparently without a safety harness and no safety net to catch him if he falls down, as shown in the photos below.

According to international news sites, the 45-year old rope artist completed his hair-raising stunt by walking at a distance of more than 5,249 feet (about 1,600 meters) down a cable car wire at Mount Corvatsch, at 9,908 ft (3,303 meters) above sea level.

Freddy Nock, a known wire artist used only a long pole to help balance himself up in the air as he walks down above the snowy mountain, and was said to have just broke his own record.

Reports said that in August 2009, Nock also walked on a cable car wire without safety harness and no safety net below him, on the Zugspitze Mountain, which was believed to be the highest mountain in Germany.

He was then watched by about 1,800 spectators as he walks the cable wire at about 9,655 feet above sea level, and raised more than $19,000 which he gave to a charity in Germany.
