It comes just months after footage emerged of a group of Russian thrill seekers in top hats and capes, throwing themselves into the belly of an abandoned cooling tower, keeping themselves safe only with a makeshift bungee cord.
The men were suspended from two ropes and the second took the rest as they plummeted towards the concrete floor of the tower.
Homemade ‘rope jumping’ has become a popular underground sport in Russia in recent years and there are reportedly several different clubs whose goal seems to be to continually top their own stunts.

Thrillseekers: Massive bridge jumping takes place in Russia in attempt to break world record
The first modern bungee jumps were performed on April 1, 1979 from the 250-foot Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, by members of the Dangerous Sports Club at Oxford University.
The jumpers were arrested soon after, but continued with jumps in the United States from the Golden Gate and Royal Gorge bridges, spreading the concept around the world.
The highest commercial bungee bridge in the world is currently located Bloukrans Bridge Bungee in Africa, commercially operated by Face Adrenalin since 1997.
