This is the moment a young daredevil drops from the top floor of a block of flats and smacks his knee against a heavy item he was using himself as a pulley counterweight against.

The incident took place in the southern Turkish province of Adana when the unnamed man was lifting furniture and heavy items up to his new fourth-floor apartment via a pulley.

The resident used his body as a counterweight and plunged from the top floor of the building while holding onto a rope to lift up a heavy box-shaped object.

In the video footage, the man is seen dropping three storeys before catching his leg on the object and nearly coming a cropper.

However, he balances himself and continues his descent as the heavy item heads to the top-floor balcony while the cameraman is heard laughing at his daredevil exploits in the background.

Reports said that the video was filmed by an unnamed passerby and posted on social media where it was widely shared.

Netizen ‘Nizameddin Dayi’ commented: “The guy is like a superhero! Our citizens are full of hidden talents!”

‘Luna Tas’ said: “Some idiots will never learn how to be like normal people. It is such a shame for our country.”

‘Bilgi Definedir’ wrote: “People like this are very dangerous for society, they rarely die themselves but can easily kill you with their stupidity.”
