Chilling images have emerged of a group of daredevils climbing construction scaffolding in Sydney without safety harnesses.
At least six boys climbed the high-rises in Rhodes, in the inner west of the city, seemingly risking their lives for a photo opportunity.
The dangerous stunt is said to have taken place about four months ago, with the video of the day being uploaded to TikTok on Wednesday.
While the identities of the individuals were unknown, the mystery photographer turned out to have a long history of filming himself in dangerous situations.

Of the more than 41,000 people who have watched his video, nearly 200 have responded, and many have expressed deep concern about the group’s behavior.
« Why? Anything for content creation? You won’t be able to see how many likes you’ve racked up, » one wrote.
“Do you ever think about what you will do to your family if you fall? Stupid and selfish, » said another.
TikTok users doubt the authenticity of the clip
Many were in disbelief at what they were watching and wondered if the images were real.
‘I’m sorry, is that real? What are those idiots doing up there?” one person wrote.
In response to a mortified commenter, the user explained why he risked his life.
« It’s a way to shock photography and videography, » he claimed.

Another pointed out that if he made one wrong move, he would almost certainly die.
‘Do you really want to risk your life like that just for the art? There’s definitely another kind of art you could do where you don’t have to die in the process, » they wrote.
The daredevil rejected their perspective, claiming that « the risk of death is extremely low ».
“Even then it’s worth it. I wake up every morning with no regrets, » he said.

In a separate response to another concerned viewer, he argued « anyone taking this seriously knows the risks and their limits ».
Someone else said such content was an easy way to « show the world you’re a grunt ».
Even more concerning was the way some of his audience seemed to be encouraged by his insane behaviour, with a handful of people saying they wanted to try something similar too.
The creator of the video used the tag « urbex », which is short for « urban exploration » – usually used to describe the exploration of man-made structures.
NSW Police said the incident had not been reported but « officers strongly discourage this type of risky behavior ».
