A new viral video uploaded to YouTube Wednesday purportedly shows a pair of individuals climbing to the top of the still under-construction Shanghai tower.
Vadim Makhorov and Raskalov Vitaliy say they climbed the 2,073-foot tower and a crane above it — peaking out at roughly 650 meters — on Chinese New Year.
“Ten days ago, during the celebration of Chinese New Year, the entire country was resting – all the people had vacations, so as the builders,” Makhorov wrote in a post. “Everybody was squibbing in their neighborhoods and enjoying the holidays. For us, it was perfect time to climb the tower and a crane jib above it (the highest point is about 650 meters).”
Since posting the incredible footage on the Internet, it has achieved just over 150,000 views and been met with rave reviews.
“This is making me nervous,” one individual commented while watching the video.
