BILOXI — Aerialist Bello Nock walked for about 13 minutes on a high wire at a resort on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
The wire was 32 stories high, or about 360 feet off the ground at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino.
Nock did the walk with no net or padding below.
He told The Sun Herald afterward that it was windy for about the first 30 seconds of the walk. Then, the breeze calmed down.
An estimated 10,000 people gathered to watch the daredevil, and he wore a microphone during his performance.
