A Moroccan tightrope walker delighted Chileans on their daily commute in Santiago on Wednesday by crossing two skyscrapers in the capital.

Mustafa Danger made the crossing 75 metres (246 feet) high on a metal cable.

Danger also has a Guinness record under his belt for a 2010 crossing in Spain at 180 metres (590 feet) high.

The Santiago tightrope event is to promote a circus festival in Chile that showcases local talent.
