Parkour aficionados film dangerous stunt in Hong Kong
The terrifying video has gone viral, being watched more than 235,000 times in one day
British parkour-apparel group Storror has uploaded a new video showing people leaping from one building to another in Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui area. Parkour is a training discipline developed from military obstacle courses.
The terrifying video footage of the Hong Kong stunt has gone viral, watched more than 235,000 times in one day.
In the three-minute-33-second video uploaded on YouTube, three parkour aficionados went to the rooftop of a building on Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, sprinted down a narrow ledge on the roof and leapt across to the next building, with no harness or safety net below.
A security guard tried to stop the stunt but failed.
After several rounds of running and leaping, the final stop was the iSquare shopping mall, where the participants used an escalator inside the mall as a slide to reach the ground floor and then left.
Netizens have had various reactions to the video, with some commenting that it was an awesome stunt, while others said it was horrifying and made them nervous, Headline Daily reported.
According to previous reports, this was not the first time the British company has backed a stunt in Hong Kong.
In 2016, three men performed several stunts in North Point Provident Centre on Hong Kong Island and on the roof of Chungking Mansion in Tsim Sha Tsui.
