Duba: In the latest series of stunts, a video circulating around social media now shows a couple climbing to the top of a skyscraper in Dubai.

In the video, Dmitry Chernysh conquers the Millennium Tower and takes his girlfriend along to the top. The video was posted on You Tube last week. 

This is not the first time that the Russian daredevil has climbed to the top of high-rise towers, as Chernysh’s Instagram account shows him posing in different photos with Dubai Marina's skyline in the backdrop.

Climbing to the top of skyscrapers has become a worrying trend, as models and bloggers have been recording their antics lately in a bid to become a media sensation.

The most recent incident occurred at the beginning of March 2017, which led Dubai Police to issue a warning against popular British video blogger James Kingston.

A video of 23-year-old Russian model Viktoria Odintcova also made headlines after she was recorded dangling from the 73-storey Cayan Tower last February.

She also signed a pledge not to put her life in danger again.



Latest Comment

The trend of unauthorized and unprotected stunts and filming them and publishing them for fame has increased recently and become a menace. Authorities should come out with strict rules to punish those who do such dangerous acts without appropriate protections and approval and supervision of necessary protective authorities. These photos and videos may encourage youth to follow them without a second thought about the impending danger if they fail or falter. Safety should never be compromised and this indeed is an unsafe situation, which should never be encouraged.
