Chinese stuntman Saimaiti Aishan was attempting to set a world record by walking across a very scary tightrope — suspended 328 feet high in the sky between two rather shaky hot air balloons — when a gust of wind knocked him of off his perch.

Miraculously, Aishan grabbed the high wire on his way down, pulled himself back up (using some nifty gymnastics) and completed the 50-foot walk.

Watch the incredible recovery below:
