Thrill-seeking teens risk their lives and imprisonment by scaling 1381ft high tower in Shanghai… to take the ultimate tourist snaps
These stomach-churning images were taken by a group of rebellious teens who happily risked their lives for the ultimate tourist snap – taken 1381ft above the ground.
Andrej Ciesielski, 18, captured the incredible images after sneaking past security guards and scaling the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, China, with two pals.
The trio climbed ladders on the outside of the building to take pictures right at the very top – aware that the slightest slip would mean certain death.
But despite getting some top-notch snaps, the group were spotted by nearby office workers – and were met by police when they arrived back in the building’s lobby, before being carted off to a Chinese police cell and questioned for seven hours.
Andrej said: ‘This was the third time my friends and I had attempted to do this climb.
‘I wasn’t scared of climbing, only of getting caught.
