Teen adrenaline junkie scales Hong Kong skyscrapers with no safety equipment and films stomach-churning moment on GoPro Camera
A teen daredevil has captured stomach-churning footage on his GoPro camera after scaling Hong Kong skyscrapers with no safety equipment.
The 17-year-old school pupil recorded his perilous climbs with the camera strapped to his head as he fearlessly scaled the Yat Chau International Plaza and the China Online Building in Hong Kong.
Andrej Ciesielski, from Munich in Germany, was joined by friend and fellow roofer, Alexander Remnev from Moscow.
The pair can be seen wandering around and exploring the treacherous rooftops with ease despite being more than 500 feet in the air with nothing to stop them plummeting to the ground.
Self-confessed thrill-seeker Andrej said: “I’ve been doing this for just over a year now. I started in Munich with little cranes and then moved onto rooftops.
“My first rooftop climb was incredible. It was so quiet up there and it was suddenly possible to see the city in a different light.
“I do roofing because I love it. It makes me feel free. The first time I sat on the edge of a roof was a real adrenaline kick but now it’s become quite normal to me.
“I’ve never had an accident because I’m always very careful and I think twice before doing anything.”
Fearless Andrej, who is also pictured in various vertigo-inducing poses around Hong Kong, claims gaining access to the buildings during his trip was easy.
He said: “Hong Kong roofing is very easy, you just go into the building find your way to the elevator go up to the last floor.
“Then all you you need to do is find the emergency exit to get out to the top, 90 per cent of the doors to the roof are open.
“I loved Hong Kong but I’d really love to go to New York soon, that would be incredible.”
