Quite a few people attempt to pull off dangerous stunts. Some do it for setting world records while others are adamant about proving a point to themselves or the world. Ever since the pandemic hit the world, we have been witness to the weird and absurdist acts that people across the globe have done. Recently, an act by a daredevil has made the internet skip a heartbeat.
A daredevil based out of Russia did bungee jumping with a twist. The unidentified man got the hooks attached to the rope pierced in his buttocks. In the bone-chilling video, accessed by The Daily Mail, one can hear the man screaming in pain once he jumps off. It is obvious that he was in acute pain as his skin must be hurting because of the tension of the rope.
The half-minute clip begins with people trying to prepare the man for the jump. A photographer is also present who is perhaps there to make sure that not a single moment of such an incident is missed. The man is seen sitting on a roof of an apparently abandoned property. His jeans are also cut in a way that the metal hooks can be pierced in them. In the clip, he is only shown with the hooks already pierced in his buttocks. A couple of seconds later, he jumps and is heard screaming loudly. As per the report, the height from which he jumped was approximately 50 feet.
This rare and seemingly painful incident was recorded in St Petersburg in Russia. Ever since this stunt has happened, the video of it has been going viral on different social media platforms. The reactions on social media are mostly of shock. Many people have also reacted to how painful this stunt would have been and the impact it on the health of the daredevil.
