(AP) -- A Georgian strongman has apparently set a new world record for pulling a truck with his ear.

Lasha Pataraya pulled a truck weighing more than eight tons for 70 feet on Thursday.

"I am very happy that I have set the sixth world record," he later told the Associated Press.

"It took me two months to prepare for this record. I will prepare more and will set more records for the delight of my fans."

A special commission was invited to monitor the event in the town of Rustavi.

Zurab Chavchanidze, the head of the commission, explained that because "Lasha did not officially document his records ... now the special commission was invited to document it."

Organizers said the result will be sent to the Guinness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking feats.

Pataraya has previously pulled a helicopter that weighed seven tons.
