Russian stuntman does back-flip on Dubai tower

Princess Tower is the latest spot for fearless Parkour climbers
20 Jul 2015 AT 02:21 PM

You may remember the heart-stopping selfie posted by Russian daredevil Oleg Cricket and friends last year. The men climbed Dubai’s Princess Tower without a harness and preformed parkour stunts, jumping between window ledges and sitting on the edge of the 1,358 foot high tower.

Recently released footage makes the stunt look even more dangerous than the pictures. It seems like a worrying trend, with footage of stuntman James Kingston climbing a crane in Dubai Marina being released at a similar time last week.

Watch the video and let us know what you think. Dangerous sport, or just plain stupid?
