A TEENAGE risks his life and the safety of others and takes his life in his hands — swinging from a tower crane 650ft in the air.

Adam Lockwood, from Wigan, dangled by his arms after climbing the huge structure in Paris with a friend.

The 18-year-old, who has been scaling buildings, cranes and bridges for the last three years, insisted he felt no fear during his latest escapade.

He said: ‘I’d been to Paris for family holidays before but never for this, so it was unreal to see — an insane view.

‘There are no words to describe how dangling at that height feels but I wasn’t scared. I don’t really feel fear anyway but, when you’re doing something as serious as a 200-metre dangle, there’s no room for fear.

‘It increases the chance of something going wrong, so you just block it out.’

Adam, who posed for his friend with a camera in his mouth, sneaked on to a building site to go up the crane during a six-day trip to the French capital.

He said: ‘There are risks in everyday life, not just climbing.’

The risks run deeper than his own life.  Job site safety, the employment of others.  This teen can climb cliffs, not tower cranes
