New Zealander Anna Cochrane aims for static trapeze world record – Watch
A New Zealand paramedic has set a new world record by performing a static trapeze act while suspended at an altitude of more than 3,000 metres.
Anna Cochrane, also a Pilates teacher, performed the act for more than 5 minutes on February 14, while hanging from a hot air balloon in the skies above Ashburton, on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island.
Though Cochrane dislocated her rib after about a minute, but persevered to complete the act.
Cochrane is likely to have smashed the record for the highest static trapeze act, which at present stands at 662 metres and was set it 2008 in China.
