      This happened a few months ago. It was in the local news at the time. Had he slipped, he certainly would not have been able to brag about it.

      Whilst it may have been fun, he was literally close to death and had he slipped that would have been it.

      Crane daredevil James Kingston reveals his motivation (From Daily Echo)
      ...Scaling a 300ft crane in Southampton, daredevil James Kingston lowered himself down before dangling from a metal bar, holding on for his dear life with only his hands.

      Then, removing one hand, just five fingers prevented him plunging to the ground to certain death.

      Safety campaigners and building firms have condemned the death-defying stunt, fearing copycats will try to ape his jaw dropping antics...
      Sorry to sound like a kill-joy, but we do need to be careful about apparently promoting stunts like this. I lost a few friends through diving incidents and know a few others. Essentially they thought that they could do things which they shouldn't. I always say "listen to the ones who don't come back and can't shout about what they did".

      I should also say that a couple of friends who lost their lives whilst diving were not doing silly stunts. Sadly one died of a heart attack, the other I can't recall. In both cases every effort was made to bring them back.

      This isn't to say that Scuba Diving is leathal. It is to say that there are limits and you should always stay within the limits.

      P.S. More people die from drowning whilst fishing each year than from Scuba Diving.

      Sorry to hear about your friends, i suppose its a chance you take when doing extreme things, but for some people its what makes their life exciting. As you was talking about scuba diving is that why your name is scubbie ?.

      Yes it is.

      BTW: It adds a whole new meaning to being 'Tanked up' when abroad.
