Afraid of heights? You might want to look away now.

Even for anyone who doesn’t mind the odd sky-high observational tower, this clip of Russian model Viktoria Odintcova hanging off the top of a skyscraper with zero safety equipment whatsoever will make your stomach drop.

Taking the idea of risky Instagram shots to new heights – 306 metres to be precise – the brunette stunner is seen hanging onto the arm of an assistant, and nothing else, at the top of Dubai’s Cayan Tower, one of the world’s tallest buldings.

Wearing a t-shirt, shorts and runners, Viktoria can be seen holding onto a photographer’s arm as she closes her eyes and leans back into nothingness.

The 23-year-old is then seen carefully clambering down so her whole body is dangling off the edge.

Then with ONE HAND, she holds onto her assistant’s arm, who for those who might have forgotten, is still holding a camera in his other hand. Talk about precarious.

“I still cannot believe that I did it. Every time I watch this video, my palms get sweaty,” Viktoria told The Sun.

Despite getting some incredible shots, Viktoria was determined to push the boundaries and climbed down so she could dangle off the building. Photo: Mavrin Studios

With over 3.1 million followers on Instagram, not everyone was a fan of Viktoria’s reckless behaviour.

“Girl, you are a disgrace #moron I hope they banned you for life from Dubai after that, you idiot,” wrote one user. “You should be boycotted for promoting dangerous behaviour and arrested.”

“This is madness! To risk your life like that just to feel a rush of life isn't exactly what living means to me… but good for you and I celebrate you,” added another.
