ome people are happy drunks, others angry drunks, and still others, daredevil drunks
Last Wednesday, passersby in the Fujian city of Quanzhou were taken aback to see a man 10 meters above the ground stumbling along some high-voltage powerlines. Firefighters arrived quickly at the scene but after three hours of negotiations were still unable to get the man to come down.
Turns out, he was totally trashed.
Eventually, firefighters positioned themselves in a tree and were able to affect his safe downfall. Luckily, the man managed somehow to not seriously injure himself during his bender. He was immediately taken away to the police station afterward.
Surprisingly enough, he isn’t the first in China to try high-voltage tightrope walking while drunk. Last October, a man in Hebei province did the very same thing, also managing not to fall.
