Man Attempts a High Wire Escape to Ditch His Hotel Bill

How high would you climb to skip out on a bill?

A Chinese man had to be rescued after he tried to cross a 196-foot-high telephone wire, moving from his hotel toward a building across the street. The stunt was done to ditch a bill that, by the looks of it, the man clearly couldn’t afford.

The man was eventually rescued by firefighters and escorted away by police.

Other details about the incident were not made clear. It’s unclear what charges or punishment he faced.

Mashable said the incident was captured in Guizhou, China, and it was captured by multiple onlookers. At the time, it was shared widely on Chinese social media.

The video was recorded in 2017.
