Artist shocks Tel Aviv with 'floating in mid-air' stunt

Perplexed pedestrians paused to try and make sense of what on the face of it was a remarkable sight: a man floating mid-air over a busy pavement.

llusionist and endurance artist Hezi Dean put on the stunt at Tel Aviv shopping centre, reportedly to promote a new show.

Dean – who hung there for five hours – broke US magician David Blaine’s endurance record in 2011 by standing on a nine-storey high pylon for 35 hours.
