Philippe Petit



He walked across the Twin Towers in 1974. It was illegal. He planned it for a very long time. He placed a cable in between the buildings and walked out in the middle of them.

According to a police officer, when Petit saw the rescue team, "he started to smile and laugh and he started going into a dancing routine on the high wire." Later on, Petit explained, "When I see three oranges, I juggle; when I see two towers, I walk."
