Model Risks Her Own Life To Take This ‘Perfect Selfie’


A Russian model has been criticised for a reckless photoshoot where she dangled off a 73 storey-high skyscraper in Dubai.

Twenty two-year-old Viki Odintcova clung on to her assistant’s hand as she leaned backwards off the side of a 1000 ft building while a photographer snapped pictures of her precarious position.

Viki shared her daring photos with her three million Instagram followers along with the caption: “I still can’t believe I did it. Every time I watch the video my palms go sweaty.”

However a number of her fans were less than impressed with her actions.

Many criticised her for disregarding her own life while others were just bewildered that someone would do something so risky for likes.

Not everyone was against Viki though as Greekscorpion wrote ‘You got guts’.

The dizzying shoot reportedly took place on the top of Dubai’s Cayan Tower, which was the world’s tallest building when it opened in 2013 before being overtaken by the Shanghai Tower in 2015.

Don’t think I’d be heading up there for a selfie!
