It’s on the limit! Fight breaks out at Brazil’s famous ‘cliff-hanging’ selfie spot after man’s photo is spoiled
- The anonymous couple fought at the top of Pedra do Telegrafo, in Rio de Janeiro.
- A man pushed another after he accidentally got in the way of their photo shoot.
- The pair quickly began to fall down the hill.
Two men risked their lives and fought over a photo at one of the world’s most famous selfie spots.
The two anonymous men got into a fight at the famous cliff-hanging illusion site at the top of Pedra do Telegrafo, in the western part of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, after a man got in the way of the photo shoot from another on Sunday.
The site is famous for its Instagram-worthy images, featuring a giant rock where people can pose for a photo that, from certain angles, gives the impression that the person is standing on the edge of an abyss.
In reality, the rock is only a few centimeters above the ground.
The furious imposter stood up from his hanging position and shoved the other man after he apparently got in the way of the photoshoot, before he was kicked and put in a headlock position.
The man who apparently started the fight was quickly placed in a headlock.
He then quickly begged his attacker for mercy as the pair tumbled down the steep hill.
The pair quickly fell a short distance down the hill while the man who appeared to have started the fight was thrown to the ground.
He can then be seen extending his hand and asking the other man to stop, as other tourists approach to stop the fight.
Both men then got up and walked back to safety as they continued arguing as the footage cut.
The Pedra do Telegrafo, located at the top of Morro de Guaratiba, is located in the Pedra Branca State Park, within the wild beaches sector of Barra de Guaratiba.
Its name comes from the time of World War II, when the area served as a military station.
The 2.2-mile hike to the summit takes visitors to an altitude of approximately 1,160 feet above sea level.
It is one of the most popular photo shoot destinations in the world.
