Chinese man filmed "tightrope walking" on high-voltage power lines

This is the terrifying moment man walked along high-voltage power lines in northern China last week.

A video, which was captured in Heshui City in Hebei Province on October 20, showed the man walking several metres up in the air along the electricity cables.

According to a witness, firefighters managed to get him down and he was taken away by the police.

It's unclear how he or why he wound up walking along the power lines.
