Dangerous SELFIE Ever…? See Photos
This is the height of irresponsibility and stupidity. A carpenter climbed crane hundreds of metres high -risking his life in the process just to take a SELFIE..shameless…Michael Dearing used a selfie stick to take the pictures of himself holding onto the crane by his fingertips as he hung perilously, near a busy motorway.
The 23-year-old was criticised for being irresponsible after uploading the pictures, taken near the M725 in Portsmouth, to his Facebook page. But the carpenter has defended himself saying;
‘I would not have climbed this crane if I thought the risk was great enough to lose my life.’I studied the crane and the weather, there was no wind, no rain, and it was incredibly clear. I walked through the front gates to the scrapyard.
‘I did not break or steal anything and had no intention to do so, I just wanted a picture.”People are saying I’m a bad role model, I disagree. I’m a qualified carpenter, I’ve completed an apprenticeship, and have been a tradesman for seven years.
‘In this time, I’ve brought a property, fixed it up and sold it on, and am living in my second home which I own. ‘I don’t think that is too bad for someone who is 23 and has achieved all this all on my own.’I would like people to see how I work very hard which has led me to this.
‘I am regularly out and about in town, and I see what kids of today are up to, and in my opinion, it is much more dangerous than what I have done.’
