/ 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

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.
