A model recently allowed herself to be dangled over the edge of a skyscraper — all in the name of a photo with shock factor.
Viktoria Odintsova, who has over 3 million followers on Instagram, agreed to do the shoot without any safety equipment. It took place atop the Cayan Tower in Dubai, formerly the world’s tallest high-rise building. As if snapping a few photos of her leaning back over the ledge wasn’t enough, she then let the male model suspend her over the edge of the building, only holding on to her by her arm and without no safety net or harness in sight.
Video footage taken at the time reveals that Odintsova, 23, proceeded to kick her legs out once being hung from the ledge, with the Dubai marina visible in the distance beneath her.
Odintsova, who is originally from St. Petersburg in Russia, said:
I still cannot believe that I did it. Every time I watch this video, my palms get sweaty.
And if you can stomach it, here's the video footage.
