BILOXI: It took aerialist Bello Nock about 13 minutes to walk a high wire Thursday on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The wire was 32 stories high, or about 360 feet off the ground, at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino.

Nock did the walk with no net or padding below.

He told The Sun Herald afterward (http://bit.ly/KomkZV) that it was windy for about the first 30 seconds of the walk, then the breeze calmed down.

An estimated 10,000 people gathered to watch the daredevil, who wore a microphone during his performance.
