Two women had a very lucky escape when the chain on their swing snapped — as they were 6,300ft above the ground.
Stomach-churning video captured in Dagestan, Russia, shows the moment the pair were thrown out of the swing, which sits more than a mile above the bottom of the Sulak Canyon — the deepest one in Europe.
Friends can be seen laughing and cheering as they film the two being pushed back and forth out over the gut-lurching precipice.
But the laughs quickly turn to screams when part of the structure gives way on the back swing, and no-one can stop the momentum throwing the women out of the seat and over the cliff’s edge.
#UPDATE : In Dagestan, two girls, riding on a swing, fell down the Sulak canyon. Fortunately, they almost did not suffer – they got off with bruises. Eyewitnesses helped the girls to get out. pic.twitter.com/HkjzMPJa0j
