The terrifying moment when a parkour runner plunges nearly 25 floors to his death after a misjudgment of the jump
- Sergey Shorokhov, a Russian Youtuber, almost falls dead
- While he jumps from ledge to ledge on the roof of a tall building, he stumbles and falls
- He catches himself in a fraction of a second on some electric wires – which shock him
- Unable to pull himself up completely, his friend comes to his rescue and saves his life
This is the terrifying moment when a parkour professional starts to fall from the 25th floor when he misses his foot – only to bring himself to safety with electrical cables if they shock him.
Sergey Shorokhov, a Russian Youtuber and freerunner, captured the horrifying moment on a camera in his mouth as he jumped from ledge to ledge on the roof of a tall building.
Filming the reckless leap, he can be heard singing in Russian before he misjudges the distance and falls off, catching himself on a number of electrical wires in a fraction of a second.
Mr. Shorokhov said the wires shocked him and made it difficult to hold him, but he decided that this was his only option.
Fortunately, his friend, who is also on the roof, rushes to his rescue and pulls him to safety, despite the danger that he himself may be shocked.
The incident took place in Russia on July 26 and was posted online yesterday.
The parkour runner, Sergey Shorokhov, misses his jump and falls off a high roof and catches himself on electrical wires
& # 39; Hold on & # 39; shouts his friend in Russian as he tries to pull him up, Mr. Shorokhov said the electric current was trying to throw me & # 39; down & # 39;
Sergey Shorokhov said: & I was in the arms of death and was born a second time.
& # 39; I have scars on my stomach and fingers. 25 years, 25th floor, 10 seconds after death. An experience that will last a lifetime. Thank you to Zlat for saving me.
& # 39; The electrical current tried to overthrow me, but I still feel the world needs me.
& # 39; My mission is not over yet. But I'm glad we met in person, Death. Because happiness became much more in me.
& # 39; Thank you for this experience. Let's see how the world responds to my madness. & # 39;

After the rescue, Mr. Shorokhov & # 39; s friend Zlat, @goldenzadrot, warns him how close he was to death and reminds him of what could have happened if he hadn't been there to save him.
Mr. Shorokhov shared photos of his injuries and a disclaimer at the start of his video with the text: & # 39; Before you write me angry comments, you must remember that I am professional. I have been doing parkour / free-run for 13 years.
& # 39; These wires were old and only found to be partially insulated.

His hand was also injured in the fall with burns, he says, frightened him for life

& # 39; The majority of the insulation was affected by time and weather conditions.
& # 39; Maybe if it were absolutely without insulation, the electric current would have pushed me down.
& # 39; The voltage in the wires was 220V I think, but my friend Zlat had time to save me because it was hard to get out of it alone because of the electrical current.
& # 39; The electrical wires have left a few scars on my body for life. They were the craziest ten seconds of my life. & # 39;

After the rescue, Mr. Shorokhov & # 39; s friend Zlat, @goldenzadrot, warns him how close he was to death
His friend seems more shocked than the incident and tells him: & # 39; You will not find good friends like me & # 39;
In the first instance, the freerunner was not sure whether he was cut by the wire or whether he was electrocuted
