This Couple Risk Their Own Lives To Climb The World’s Highest Crane Just To Take… SELFIEs

Russians don’t do regular selfies. In fact, there is a new trend that has their youth putting themselves in dangerous situations by climbing the highest rooftops, skyscrapers, and structures to get the best pic to share on their Instagram accounts.

Angela and her boyfriend Ivan Beerkus climbed 2,000 feet upwards on a rickety crane overlooking Tianjin, China, just to say that they did. They were sent by Travel Ticker to the location because it’s the tallest construction site in the world, the Goldin Finance 117 building. Somehow, they managed to climb to the top without getting caught, fined, or arrested, so only one question remains: Did the risk of plummeting to their untimely deaths bring these two closer together? We’re not sure, but we do know that you have got to see the video below.

For the 23-year-old, she is not satisfied with looking pretty in her pics. Nikolau will often practice her yoga moves or sunbathe high in the sky while she uses a selfie stick to freeze a moment of her epic experience. This daredevil knows a picture is worth a thousand words.

Please note as cool as these images are, do not try these yourselves.

Angela is a self-taught photographer. She has over 127,000 followers on Instagram.
