Watch: Shocking footage of cliff swing breaking

The viral video showed a cliff-side tourist swing break, throwing the occupants over the edge.

The incident happened in the Sulak Canyon in Dagestan, Russia back in July 2021, but new versions of the video have been uploaded to social media recently, reminding all how lucky the two women were to survive.

The footage shows a man pushing the swing with two females. Gradually he uses more force, but the women do not appear perturbed. Then unexpectedly one of the chains attached to the swing snaps, throwing the seat out of control. Unable to maintain balance and surprised by the failure the women fall off the swing and appear to plunge in mid-air down the 6,300 foot cliff face.

But luck was on their side. Both women were saved by a safety platform from where they were pulled to safety by shocked onlookers.

‘The girls got scared and sustained scratches, but neither of them suffered serious injuries, ‘ a source told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

‘It is chilling to imagine what could have happened if they slipped when the swings were at a maximum height.’

  1. Do silly things, win stupid prizes…!
    Just the fact that the swing was allowing for apogees past the cliff line should tell those visiting the site that something is …WRONG!
    But, for those who are WEF / NWO / Globalists / Zio-Communists, I say-
    HAVE A GO!!!
