A parkour runner missed his jump and fell off a high-rise building’s rooftop.
For those who are unfamiliar with the sport, parkour is an ‘attempt to get from point A to point B in the fastest and most efficient way possible, without assisting equipment and often while performing flips’.
It can be an extremely dangerous sport to partake as one runner showed when he missed his jump and fell off a high-rise rooftop. You can watch the footage below.
Warning: The video contains content some viewers may find pretty terrifying.
As shown in the video, the parkour runner was seen walking on the ledge before going around a sharp corner.
After being caught up in what looked like electrical wires, the man lost his footing and fell down the side of the building.
Luckily, he managed to salvage the situation by clutching the wires and scrambling back up the wall.
After the video racked up more than 2.4 million views, fans were quick to react.
One said: “I think he finally found that proper adrenaline rush he was looking for.”
Another wrote: “Is anyone else impressed at how strong those wires are? I guess they both messed up his attempt and saved his life at the same time.”
A third fan added: “As someone who also came close to falling to his death rock climbing, I understand that hysterical laughter at the end when you reach safety.”
Someone else commented: “As someone who’s slipped off the top of a roof into a pool inches away from the concrete, the laughter is relatable.”
Whilst a fifth added: “He’s SO lucky his friends were there to save him. Imagine if he did this alone…”
