Highly Risky: Pair Warned After Cable Car Stunt

croatiantimes.com

This fearless pair got a taste of the high life - as they perched on top of a cable car more than 3,000 ft above a mountain precipice.

The real life cable guys sat calmly eating snacks as they dangled their legs over the edge of the gondola while it swung in the wind as it inched its way up the mountainside in Qingtianhe national park in central China.

"We couldn't believe what we were seeing," said one fellow tripper.

"After a few minutes they opened the door and climbed onto the roof and sat there as relaxed as if they'd been sitting on the ground.

"It must have been freezing for them but when they got to the top they just hopped off looking very pleased with themselves," they added.

Officials at the park in Jiaozuo, Henan province, warned other visitors of the risks.

"Passengers have to stay inside the cars for their own safety," said a spokesman.

"The cars often sway in the wind or jerk around because of the gears and mechanism.

"Any one of those could have thrown these men to their deaths.

"It was an idiotic stunt and we warn people they are genuinely risking their lives," they added.
