The 6th generation successor of Xinjiang Dawa Zi, Aisi Kaier, failed to challenge the 1st "blind wire walking" global challenge in Pingjiang county, Hunan province on July 8. The challenger fell off from a wire which was 250 meters high and 700 meters long, but fortunately he didn’t get serious injuries. At the beginning, the challenge went on quite well. However, the man suddenly dropped and fell to the bamboo forest when he was only 40 meters away from the finish line. He attributed the failure to the hot weather that made him very dizzy.
