World News – Imagine yourself as a trapeze artist flying 30 or 40 feet above a net, When you look down you have a little fear of heights but know that you will land safely if you fall. Now imagine yourself doing this at close to 2000 feet. That is what Roxane Giliand does for a living.
Despite the nail-biting danger, the duo insisted on performing the daredevil routine twice so that a film crew could capture the moment perfectly.
Mr Schneider, 29, teamed up with his father’s circus class to mix juggling, trapeze and other arts with paragliding and came up with the idea to have Roxane perform.
Their flight over Annecy Lake, in the French Alps, was captured by adventure filmmaker Adrien Sham who paraglided alongside.
Adrien, 31, said: ‘I was shooting the video with the trapezist and it was the last sequence to shoot before ending the video.
‘They were pretty far away the first, so they insisted we do it again get closer and show audiences. I’m delighted we did it because people were completely amazed.’
