Russia: Vertigo anyone? Dare-devil teeters on top of the Nevsky building

Russian Federation, St. Petersburg
August 20, 2015 at 18:38 GMT +00:00 · Published

An unknown group of Russian thrill-seekers climbed onto the perilous iron bars at the top of the Nevsky Prospect building in St. Petersburg on Sunday, teetering over a 116 metre (381ft) drop with no safety gear.

It is the group's second attempt to "walk along the wires" above city's central street, unable to perform the feet for the first time due to nerves.

Security guards of buildings were not aware of the stunt, and have reportedly begun an internal investigation into how the group gained unauthorised access into the building.
