TBILISI, Georgia, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- A Georgian strongman said he will attempt a world record by trying to pull an 8-ton truck by cords attached to his ears.

Gvandzhi Mania, head of the Georgian Union of Sporting Achievements and Records, said Lasha Pataraya's record count would increase to seven if his Thursday attempt at Rustavi international airport near Tbilisi is successful, RIA Novosti reported Tuesday.

Pataraya's previous ear-based records include dragging a 2.35-ton microbus for 135 feet and carrying a 115-pound weight from his ears for 19.9 seconds.
