/ UKC member spotted hanging one handed from a 250ft crane.
If I'm not mistaken, its the guy in the photos below. There is a face shot at (2:18). Amazing stuff, got my hands sweating.
UKC pic climber is Mark
Yahoo pic climber is James
so may not be the same bloke.
The climbers name in the photos is Mark Almack. It says it underneath. The climber in the vid, is called James Kingston.
Stomach churning video nonetheless.
I wonder if it was done as a proper stunt, as he may have got the securtiy gaurd and site manager the sack! If he had fallen, the site manager would have ended up in court, then prison!
Sorry, that sounds realy boring! just my health and safety construction head! :D
So if i illegally gain access onto a site, climb up something and fall off the site manager goes to prison ?
It's a funny old world we live in nowadays if that's true.
I liked the vid but am even more impressed by the UKC pics. I love 'discovering' people who are out there doing that kind of stuff without publicity.
dunno, but looking at the third person footage, there was two people up there from the looks of it
Seems to have made the press and is reported as viralnow.
says they were met by police on the way down.
It's on dozens of news sites now, including the Daily Mail, over 400 comments and the top one just says Respect. Perhaps they're going soft.
