Man Snaps £150,000 Sculpture Because He Is ‘Bored’ And Takes Heavy Blow To The Head

Guy damaged a sculpture worth £150,000 after he climbed up it when he was ‘bored’.

 

 

The cheeky chappy Kiwi man Hunter Macdonald was enjoying a day off by the waterfront in Wellington, New Zealand, when he came across what – unbeknownst to to him – was a piece of art, a metal structure entitled ‘Water Whirler’. So obviously his next logical step was to jump on and clamber up it.

As a crowd gathered he went higher and higher, eventually swinging out over the water. Then it all went tits up for old Hunter, as the piece of art snapped and sent him plunging into the sea, before he eventually resurfaced with a bloody head.

Speaking to tvnz, he said: “I started to perform some of my newfound gymnastics skills and one thing led to another. I seemed to attract a bit of an audience and I started to test the limits of the metal sculpture.”

He added: “It my day off, I was bored. It was a nice day. The pole itself has rungs and to an idiot like me it looks like a ladder… There wasn’t a sign that says ‘don’t climb’.”
