This Man Escaped the Iron Curtain by Zip Line
In 1986, Daniel Pohl was stuck in communist Czechoslovakia, looking for a way to escape life under totalitarian rule.
His exit strategy was unusual, to say the least.
After realizing that he could not rely on traditional forms of transport, Daniel chose to zip line his way to freedom.
After teaming up with a physicist, the two devised a plan using a series of DIY pulleys.
Thankfully, his journey proved to be mission possible as he successfully crossed the Iron Curtain, making a safe escape into Austria.
