In a bid to get a good photo, a model Viktoria Odintsova, let someone dangle her a thousand feet in the air from the side of skyscraper without safety equipment.

Odintsova clamboured onto a narrow ledge on the Cayan Tower in Dubai.

The 23-year old puts her trust in a male helper, letting him hold her by one arm as she kicks her feet with the Dubai marina visible far below.

Speaking on the shoot, Odintsova, from St Petersburg in Russia said: ‘I still cannot believe that I did it. Every time I watch this video, my palms get sweaty.’
