A video has gone viral on Chinese social media capturing the moment that one man, showing off on the side of a mountain, suddenly lost his grip.
The heart-stopping incident occurred last Friday on Chongqing Municipality’s Jigong Mountain. A man is seen trying to strike some rad poses for the camera on a huge rock jutting out from the cliff side. He takes it up a notch by showing off his rock climbing skills, hanging off the side of the rock, letting one leg dangle in the open air while his companions snap photos and videos, oohing and aahing in amazement.
But then, while lowering himself back down, he loses his grips and falls off the cliff side as onlookers scream in horror.
It’s not clear how far the man fell, but somehow he miraculously survived the incident with only cuts and bruises.
In the past, others haven’t been so lucky.
