A little boy has carried out an impressive performance on a Chinese TV show walking a tightrope blindfolded at 30 feet high.
The child, named Abdullah, comes from Western China and is already a veteran rope walker.
At the tender age of five, he revealed on the show that he had already earned a car for his family with his tightrope-walking skill.
The boy, from Kashgar city in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, appeared on a show named 'Wonderful kids' produced by iQiyi, an online video platform.
His episode aired on December 10.
He told the host that he learned rope-walking when he was two and a half years old. Abdullah rope walked as high as 10 feet before the show.
'Are you paid well for your performance?' the host asked.
'They didn't pay me with cash, instead they gave me a car,' the shy boy answered.
'Is that a bicycle?' the host joked.
'Not, it's a very big car,' he replied.
'You are only a small child but you have already earned a car for your family!' the host was impressed by the answer.

This time, he performed at a height of 30 feet, almost three storeys high. He had to walk a tightrope with a distance of 66 feet in a video posted by YiGuoShuiZhuYu to Miaopai.
To make the walk more challenging, he blindfolded himself so he could only maintain the balance using other senses.
After he finished the walk, he repeated the stunt with plates tied to his foot, making him the first child in China to accomplish such a daring feat.
He managed to finish both walks on the show.
