Psychiatrists Examine High-Rise Tight-Rope Walker NEW YORK (AP) - A 24-yea r - o I d daredevil from France walked a tightrope for a half hour between the rooftops of the World Trade Center’s twin 110-story towers Wednesday morning, balancing on a metal cable seven-eighths of an inch in diameter. “If I sec three oranges. “And if have to really justified by the fact; Todaifm Chuckle Money is a thing you’d get along without beautifully if only other people weren’t so crazy alxiut it. C wright j told authorities later I pee two towers, I walk.” The stunt thrilled the curious below as Petit stood, lay down and at one point hung by his feet, police said. Police rushed to the rooftops to apprehend him and when it was over they took him to a hospital's mental ward for examination. Police at the Port Authority of New York and .New Jersey and friends of Petit said he had performed similar feats in Paris and Australia. Petit s walk atop the 1.350-foot-high buildings almost doubled the previous record for the highest tightrope walk. The Guinness Book of World Records lists the walk of Karl Wallenda over the 750-foot-deep Tallulah Gorge in Georgia in 1970 as the previous record. Later, awaiting booking on misdemeanor charges of trespass and disorderly conduct, the ebullient Frenhman waxed rhapsodic about the stunt. “I am a high wire walker. That was the most beautiful place in the world to put a wire to walk. I saw the city waking up, which was beautiful,” he said. He turned aside a suggestion that the stunt was intended to lead to something lucra tive. At the same time, some of the men who helped him were at news service offices with pictures and accounts of the high walk. In Paris, Petit had walked between the towers of the Cathedral of Notre Dame; in Australia it was the towers of the Sydney harber bridges, according to David Forman. Forman, a rock singer, said he helped carry cable and other equipment to the top of the office complex past unsuspecting guards and construction workers. Petit and his friends — at times there were six — played the roles of delivery men, workers, or messengers, Forman said. Petit and an assistant spent tho night on the south tower's rooftop, hidden at first under a tarpaulin Two other friends wjth cameras stayed on the north tower. At dawn, they u.sed a five-foot longbow to fire a fishing line attached to the cable across the 90 feet that separates the structures, Forman said. At about 7 a m., the stunt began. Petit, clad in black tights and carrying a balancing pole, walked from the south tower to the north and back again. Then he did it again, as crowds gathered on the lower Manhattan streets and traffic snarled. Police found it hard to get to the scene. Forman and other friends described Petit as an accomplished aerialist who has been living in New York since last winter and earning his living as a street entertainer who passes a hat. He has been performing on a unicycle, doing slcigbt-of-hand tricks and juggling be fore impromptu audiences at streets outside such sites as Lincoln Center and Madison Square Garden. But. Forman said, he was single-minded about the World Trade Center since seeing a picture of its towers. “That’s the only reason he was in the States,” Forman said When Petit’s walk was over. Port Authority police were waiting for him on the rooftop. They took him and his assistant, Jean-Franco Heckel, 25. into custody, but the two accomplices on the other rooftop eluded capture. Petit and Heckel were taken to Beekman-Downtown hospital, where they were placed under psychiatric evaluation. “They’ve been preparing for this for weeks,” said the hospital’s executive director, Geoffrey High. “They’ve been taking supplies to the roof, and Wednesday they did their act." They seem like perfectly normal human beings.” High said “But anyone who does this HO stories up can’t be entirely right.” The World Trade Center is a massive office complex administerd by the Port Authority. The upper stories of both towers are still unoccupied because interior construction is not complete. High said Petit told him he had seen pictures of the Trade Center and decided the team “just had to do it.” High called Petit and his assistant “very nice young men. They're very exicted, elated, proud ” “And I guess,” High said. “They’ll go on to bigger and higher things.” day. said: “Enough is enough and these most recent facts just add more agony upon agony. The best thing the President can do for this country and the world is to ; step down immediately.” Three Leftists Slain LA PLATA, Argentina (AP)— Three leftists were shot dead Wednesday in the bloody rivalry of Peronist groups.
