Who wants to go hang gliding?! We're a little hesitant after seeing the crazy experience Chris Gursky had. While vacationing in Switzerland he and his wife decided to go on a hang-gliding adventure. During the pre-flight check, the harness Chris was wearing wasn't attached.

After they launched, he was hanging onto the glider with his bare hands! Luckily, the instructor was able to land safely but not before a frightening flight high above a village. Remarkably, Chris only suffered a fractured wrist and torn bicep. Plus, he plans on going hang gliding again in the future!

Terrifying Moment Young Kid Plays On Ledge & Funny Cat Hangs On For Dear Life

Somewhere in Goiás, Brazil someone caught this horrifying moment on video of a young child playing on a window ledge on the seventh story of an apartment building. Reports don't give a reasoning for the child's behavior or the whereabouts of the child's caregivers — nevertheless, this is shocking. A security camera sent an alert to Miles Tippett's phone of potential movement. Usually, it's nothing more than a neighbor checking the mail or leaves blowing in the wind but this time was different. His roommate's cat Budgie was walking on top of a covered parking awning when he must have lost his footing. Good thing cats always land on their feet! View Now

Hang Glider Goes For Wild Ride & Riding The Anti-Gravity Snowmobile

Hang Glider Goes For Wild Ride & Riding The Anti-Gravity Snowmobile

Juan Camilo Marin Giraldo was out hang gliding in Roldanillo, Colombia, just above some burning sugar cane fields. He saw the rising hot hair as the perfect opportunity to gain some elevation, but what he didn't anticipate was all the turbulence and debris that would come with it. That plan immediately landed him in a dangerous situation, but Juan is the 2018 National Hang Gliding Champion, so he's able to recover flawlessly.  Closer to the ground, one guy in Canada wanted to see if he could rig his snowmobile with a giant parachute to create a sort of anti-gravity snowmobile. He didn't quite get the machine off the ground, but he was able to pop a very long and cool-looking wheelie. via ViralHog View Now
