Most people will admit to doing some pretty stupid stuff when they’re drunk, hell, I’ve done some really f*cking idiotic things when I’ve been overly friendly with tequila, but these kids really take the biscuit.
After having too many drinks, the Ukrainian duo decided that it would be a stand up idea to slide all the way down a glass wall in Independence Square, Kiev, without any safety gear whatsoever, while being filmed by their friends.
One witness, Pavel Yaremenko, 29, claimed:
These guys were drunk and they were fooling around at the top, I don’t think they really intended to jump, but their friends were encouraging them so they decided to do it.
But once they started picking up speed they must have regretted it but it was too late to stop then. They really hit the ground fast.
Watching it is bad enough but quite what possessed Jacob Polyakov and his friend Jamal Maslow to do this is beyond me. Maslow got off lightly, suffering a broken coccyx while Polyakov is unfortunately in intensive care after hitting his head, but when you slide down glass, picking up speed a you go, onto a concrete surface, what on earth do you expect?
