Lasha Pataraia Pulls Eight-ton Truck with his Ear
[Here’s a man who’s all ears… when it comes to record-breaking feats. Lasha Pataraia literally pulled himself into the Guinness Book of Records by his ears.
The 32-year-old from Georgia managed to pull this massive 8,250kg (8 tons) truck for 21,50 metres (70.5 feet) with just a rope tied around his left ear.
The feat was accomplished in the Georgian city of Rustavi outside the capital Tbilisi. Pataraia is now waiting to hear (if he still can) if Guinness has confirmed his record]. – Zoran Bozicevic
