Viktoria Odintsova, 23, clamboured onto a narrow ledge with no safety equipment whatsoever on the Cayan Tower in Dubai. Yup, she was held only by the hand of a male assistant as she dangled from the 1,004-foot tall skyscraper.

The Russian model with three million followers first tilted backwards over the huge drop, before dangling high above the ground from the arm of her bearded helper. “I still cannot believe that I did it. Every time I watch this video, my palms get sweaty,” she told The Sun.




WE SAID THIS: A six-minute YouTube video (watch it above) shows Odintsova and her supposed assistant planning the trip and climbing the stairs of the Cayan Tower to carry out the stunt.
