Bashkiria: thrill-seekers walk the ropes stretched between houses
Residents of houses who witnessed the trick called the police.
In Ufa, thrill-seekers staged a deadly trick by walking the ropes stretched at the height of a ten-story panel house. The video hit the social networks. It shows two young men wearing bright red jackets trying to walk the distance between the skyscrapers on the rope. At the same time, the rope is swaying in the wind so strongly that the thrill-seekers are forced to make stops. Shortly after that, one of the tightrope walkers falls down, hanging on the safety line.
According to local media, residents of the house were not impressed with the presentation; they called the police, and rope-walkers were detained. Preliminary information indicates that the detainees wrote explanatory notes and were released.
