Daredevil sits on wire over Times Square

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - A stuntman sat on a chair on a wire three stories above Times Square on Tuesday.

The spectacle caused by Bello Nock, who has spent most of his life as a stunt artist, while high above the 'crossroads of the world,' was to preview his attempt at an even bigger feat later this year.

"At the end of the summer I will perform 15 death defying stunts in 15 minutes," said Nock.

But before he gets to that, he invited fans to take a selfie with him on Tuesday. People can walk up about halfway along a bridge and snap a pic.

"It takes a lot of stamina and endurance. You’re constantly in that balance. I’m not relaxing that’s for sure," said Nock.
