Daredevil Walks Tightrope Between Los Angeles Skyscrapers

A daredevil risked his life — and arrest — when he walked a tightrope suspended between a pair of graffiti-covered skyscrapers in downtown Los Angeles. Ben Schneider posted a clip showing him walking the tightrope suspended between the two skyscrapers at Oceanwide Plaza, a vacant development that has become known as the graffiti towers due to the artwork covering the buildings. The 28-year-old acknowledged that it was scary looking down. “When you get scared, you start to shake, and when you shake, the line shakes and then you fall off,” said Schneider. "That’s when you have to calm your mind." Schneider, who wore a safety harness during the stunt, crossed the nylon rope in about 2 minutes. Police said they were investigating the incident. It was not clear whether Schneider will face any charges.
