Russian model who dangled off 1000ft skyscraper

Victoria Odintsova, 23, had to sign a written statement promising not to repeat the stunt on the 1,004 ft tall Cayan Tower in Dubai.Supported only by the hand of a male assistant, the Russian stunner was filmed leaning backwards over the edge of the 73-storey structure.She then climbed slowly down to a ledge before dangling in the air.Major General Halil Ibragim Al-Mansuri, of the Dubai Police, said: "The actions of the Russian woman put her life at risk."He added that it was important that residents of Dubai understood that such dangerous activities should not be performed without safety equipment and the permission of the authorities.Odintsova"s video of her hair-raising stunt went viral but many viewers were shocked, with one saying she is "the beauty with no brains".However, the model says that the authorities should have thanked her for highlighting the lack of security of the Cayan Tower after she and her team made it onto the rooftop without being challenged.Ms Odintsova - who has more than three million followers on social media - admitted she had been nervous during the stunt."I still cannot believe that I did it. Every time I watch this video, my palms get sweaty," said the St Petersburg-based beauty.The Cayan Tower was the world"s tallest high-rise building with a 90-degree twist when it opened in 2013, although this record has since been beaten by the Shanghai Tower.
