Insane free-runner hangs from London crane without safety harness
28th May 2014

Professional free-runner James Kingston has created another shocking video of himself climbing a crane in London without any safety equipment. 

The 23-year-old has taken on a host of crazy stunts including climbing 390ft up the Moscow Bridge in Kiev. 

His latest video sees him climb hundreds of feet up a crane and hang from the top, with just the strength of his arm and hand preventing him from falling to his death. 

“It’s something about hanging from a crane that is very attractive to me,” he told London Live.

“I’m 100 per cent sure that I will not fall. The only thing that would cause me to die is if I would let go.

“There’s no way the wind would blow my grip off.”

James added those closest to him have asked him to stop, including his mum, but said free-running has given his life meaning. 

“I know what I want to do in life now,” he said. 

Don’t try this at home!
