Heart-stopping moment urban explorer hangs from the top of a 500ft radio mast with only his friend’s arm to support him as part of a trust stunt

Incredible footage shows an urban explorer performing a trust fall stunt – 500 feet in the air.

Matthew Adams, from Lowestoft, Suffolk, risked his life for the video which saw him hang from the top of a radio tower with only his friend’s arm to support him over the terrifying drop.

Footage of the stunt was taken in south Norfolk at Bawburgh mast, which is situated at a now unused RAF headquarters.

The mast towers at 500ft in height, and was once used for radio communication before the site closed down 25 years ago.

But Mr Adams claims he was not fazed by the drop and described the structure as ‘relatively small’.

The student said: ‘I visited this particular location as it’s a relatively small mast in comparison to some, and I wanted to try some new stunts and ideas before taking them to a greater height.

‘It wasn’t as scary as it looks, it was just simply mind over matter for me.

‘As an explorer I like to visit places not normally seen by the public, as well as performing stunts and creating photography and videos.’
