ARE YOU GUYS HIGH?

High-rise id­iots risk their lives

NT News - - FRONT PAGE - WILL ZWAR

TWO dare­dev­ils have been caught on cam­era sit­ting on the edge of a Dar­win build­ing, dan­ger­ously dan­gling their legs above the street be­low.

Dar­win res­i­dent Stu­art But­ler snapped the dopey duo be­hind The Oaks Elan Ho­tel on Satur­day night while he was walk­ing along Litch­field St with his wife on their 19th wed­ding an­niver­sary.

“It was Satur­day night about 7pm, just be­fore the sun came down. We were walk­ing back to the ho­tel from Tim’s Surf and Turf and saw two blokes perched on the wall hav­ing a drink,” he said.

“They didn’t seem too stressed about any­thing but it was pretty crazy.”

Mr But­ler said it would’ve been a great view for an evening drink but ques­tioned if it was worth the risk.

“I’m as­sum­ing they must have stepped over from the bal­cony there, they were just en­joy­ing a drink Ter­ri­to­rystyle,” he said.

“I thought they were pretty crazy be­cause one slip and it’s all over but I’m sure they had a good view from up there … they were way too high, it must have been a good 10 storeys up.”

The 11-year Dar­win res­i­dent has seen plenty of wild and wacky things in the Ter­ri­tory and said drink­ing a beer on a ledge 10 sto­ries high was right up with the cra­zi­est.

“That’s prob­a­bly up there, I’ve cer­tainly seen plenty of peo­ple do silly things with crocodiles, perch­ing your­self on a ledge that high is prob­a­bly cra­zier I reckon,” Mr But­ler said.
