A group of young men who climbed onto the top of a 450-metre high building in Jiansu filmed themselves hanging precariously off the edge – all for the sake of a few “rooftopping” selfies.
The members of a Chongqing group dedicated to the daredevil activity, climbed Nanjing’s tallest building, the 89-storey Zifeng Tower, and took selfies while hanging off the edge of its two-metre square spire. –
Tong Hu, one of the group’s members, said he was “lucky enough” this time since they were usually intercepted by the security guard staff who are worried that people climbing to the tops of buildings are trying to commit suicide.
Tong said he has carried out similar stunts on all of the skyscrapers in Chongqing. He added that his group of “rooftoppers” never take any kind of safety measures to protect themselves as they “get used to” it. –
The report quoted a police officer as saying anyone climbing onto a rooftop without permission could be charged with public order offences.
