Dauncey Towers was the location of the illegal televised tightrope stunt, conducted by daredevil extraordinaire Manuel Thibault Louren in 1981.

Lauren, a French-Spanish circus acrobat maimed by a lion in a freak accident, wanted to prove that even a one-legged trapeze artist could complete a building tightrope manoeuvre. Using a long-dirided technique of cartwheeling across the tightrope to achieve success in record time, Louren was convinced he could utilise his one leg and still complete the task.

To record viewing numbers, Louren took his first step onto the rope and began his cartwheel routine. He made it halfway before a gust of wind knocked him off the rope. Managing to grasp on, he was able to crawl to the other side to jeering ridicule below.

Louren was able to co-ordinate a return to Dauncey Towers in 1985, where he successfully completed a second tightrope attempt.


The Dauncey Towers along with the Cutler, Reed, Comer, and Wooten towers were used at the beginning of the outbreak to evacuate citizens in the west, north, south, east, and central parts of Malton.

During the first 5 days of the outbreak The Dauncey towers were used to airlift uninfected citizens from the city before the complete quarantine of Malton. Dauncey was the western evacuation point and ran the longest before finally being shutdown and overrun. In all 76 civillians and 13 military personel were evacuated from the towers.
