Suspended 80 feet in the air. Upside down. Bound by straight jacket.

A sight we’ve seen many times. Normally you’d find a beautiful wife or significant other with hand pressed against mouth, fretting furiously over the safety of her man aside screaming onlookers.

Fran Houchin was certainly frightened for the safety of her husband Wayne yesterday as he was hoisted by a crane and made to escape a straight jacket. And we are sure she would have clasped an open palm to quivering face if it hadn’t been restricted. And airborne. That’s because Fran was next to Wayne, high above Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic escaping a straight jacket under the same conditions as her husband.

The couple executed a double straight jacket escape to promote the end of domestic violence in The DR yesterday.

They are currently in the island nation alongside Lee Asher, Daniel Garcia, Alex Rangel, Jason Wethinton and Bolivar Bueno for the annual Curiosidades show. Find more information on that at their Facebook group.
