NERVES OF STEEL: RUSSIAN TEEN DAREDEVIL PLAYS ON A CRANE – When you write as much as I do you get to hear and see some very foolish things and in this video I’m not completely sure if this young man is either foolish or just has a death wish.
When it comes to heights I’m a complete wimp. I get dizzy standing on a chair and if the ladders need to come out in my house I’m the one at the bottom holding them while the wife goes up.
The video above shows a Russian teenager climbing around a construction crane approximately 1,000 feet up. I have to be honest I’ve watched the video in part as I kept turning away. Just watching this guy at this height simply makes my stomach turn.
It appears that some people really do have to live extreme lives in order to feel alive and yet I cannot help but think this is such a foolish thing to undertake. It is obvious that with one slight error his life would be ended with a very abrupt stop.
Look carefully and you can see that this teenage has not one safety harness, no rope and yet he seems totally unconcerned about the danger.
The worst part of the video for me is when he goes over the edge and hangs on with just one hand and then proceeds to do monkey bar swings. The finale comes as he does pull-ups with just one hand again before pulling himself back up onto the body of the crane.
I have to say that the whole video for me was truly disturbing due to the lack of concern for his own life. I understand that some people like a thrill but there are those who take this to the extreme and this undoubtedly is one of those cases.
