Offbeat Video

By Charles Wade-Palmer

Heart-stopping video shows daredevil teenagers toying with death while climbing up wet scaffolding.

Two lads looked to have been inspired by the latest Spiderman movie as they mounted a scaffold structure to the amusement of a third mate watching.

The group looked to have walked to the back of a city centre car park specifically to climb a ten-metre high scaffolding structure in the rain on Tuesday afternoon.

A shocked onlooker who filmed the worrying scale said: “I wondered what the lads were doing loitering around a car park when they’re clearly too young to drive.

“Then I saw them head towards the scaffolding at the back and I thought there’s no way they could be reckless enough to play on it.

“First the bigger lad in the group climbed onto it and he just kept on going before his mate looked to want to get in on the action.

Two boys who look to be aged between 14 and 16-years-old dangerously scaled an unattended scaffolding structure in a Birmingham City centre car park at 4:30pm on Tuesday afternoon.

The horrified witness who filmed the teenagers from an office block said: “Is there really nothing better for them to do in the Summer holidays than risking their lives?

“My heart was in my mouth the entire time until they climbed back down and left looking pleased with themselves. I dread to think what could have happened after just one slip.”
