“I have a couple of burns on my stomach and hands. But I’m alive.”
This is the terrifying moment a parkour professional begins to fall from the 25th floor when he misses his footing – only to pull himself to safety on electrical cables as they shock him.
Sergey Shorokhov, a Russian Youtuber and freerunner captured the hair-raising moment on a camera held in his mouth as he jumped from ledge to ledge on the roof of a high rise building.
As he is filming the reckless jump he can be heard singing in Russian before misjudging the distance and falling off, catching himself in a split second on some electrical wires.
Mr Shorokhov said the wires were shocking him and making it difficult to hold on, however he decided that was his only option.
Thankfully his friend who is also on the rooftop rushes to his aid, pulling him to safety despite the danger that he could be shocked himself.
The incident took place in Russia on July 26 was posted online yesterday.
