James Kingston, British freerunner and stuntman, is back with yet another death-defying stunt. The latest video by the 23-year-old shows him climbing up a crane in Bangalore, India and hanging one - handed over the populated city only to take us through some breathtaking views of the landscape. All this, while he risks his life without wearing a harness.

As scary as it may seem, Kingston scales the crane with effortless ease and continues to climb the less-than-a-foot-wide strip of metal, in a video released by Epic TV as part of the adventure series 'On the Edge'.

The professional adventurer is best known for his daredevil stunt where he scaled the Moscow Bridge in Ukraine and performed a somersault on reaching the summit. Continuing his quest for adventure, Kingston also admitted to overcoming his fear of heights. He said -

“I tried to think: what scares me? The answer was being high up. I moved up from there. I used to be completely terrified of heights, but the more you do something, the easier it gets. It’s simple human nature.”
