World’s longest highline (537m) in Switzerland gets destroyed by a lightning

Samuel Volery and his team set up the world’s longest highline (slackline) between two Churfirsten-Summits - the Zuestoll and Schibestolln.

After managing to rig the 537m long highline and a promising first day trying to break the world record, an announced thunderstorm forces the team to withdraw to the basecamp.
When the clouds clear and the sun shows itself again, they can’t believe what just happened… The line is gone - cut by a lightning stroke.
