Daredevils scale Chinese skyscraper for death-defying selfie
Adrenaline junkies recently scaled a skyscraper in China to take a selfie for the ages.
Photographers from the “On The Roofs” collective appeared to sneak into the Shun Hing Square tower in Shenzhen and bust in a locked door to access the roof. They then clamber up a spire without safety equipment and snap a selfie with a selfie stick, 1,260 feet above the ground.
“On The Roofs” is “dedicated to urban exploration,” and consists of Russian and Ukrainian photographers Vitaliy Raskalov, 21, and Vadim Makhorov, 25. The pair was joined by Ivan Beerkus in this video, Mashable reported.
It is unknown if the trio of guerrilla steeplejacks were given permission to climb the tower, which is the 28th tallest building in the world.
The bold photographers have climbed to precarious vistas in Europe, Asia and North America. Not only are the photo-ops risky, but the quality of much of their work is highly impressive. Check out their galleries here to see where else these daredevils have climbed.
