People love watching thrill-seekers perform stunts in videos.
We see movie stunts all the time, and even though those can still be dangerous, they're performed in carefully controlled situations designed to ensure that as few injuries as possible occur. Real-life stunts can be a little more...raw. Maybe it's the actual threat of danger that keeps adrenaline junkies coming back for more.
A recent stunt seemed like it couldn't really go wrong when a man decided to attach himself to a cord and jump from a building as it was being demolished. After all, he'd be above the action, right?
