Jeeze, even an amatuer engineer can see that the set-up was ripe for disaster.
I could tell that from the very beginning.
What a bone-head.

Most stuntmen, daredevils and the like usually take calculated risks, so I don't feel they are taking a huge risk or doing something stupid, more of a scare factor thing. But like others have said, his rig is the most dodgy looking thing ever! What calculations were made here?

Awesome outcome though.

Engineer? Far less knowledgable people could spot this disaster. All they needed was some steel tubing which would've probably cost less than the cables they used.

God. Why do people do these things? Seriously.. Why would anyone put themselves in danger knowing that there is a slight chance on having your life taken away from you in just a second.
