Human Tower Sets Record in NYC (FOX TV)

New York City, NY –

The Spanish tradition of building multi-story human towers called “Castells” made its New York City debut on Wednesday.

It’s only the second time human towers have ever been built in the United States, but it’s a new world record – an eight human tier tower, which is 40 plus feet.

It’s also the first human tower ever assembled on a roof.  No ladder, nets or harnesses were involved.

The Guinness World Record is six human tiers set in 2007… and it was not on a roof.
