[APK-News]8.24.08 - Cairns, Australia - Rooftop Jumping is

rssIcon.gif 8.24.08 - Cairns, Australia - Rooftop Jumping is DANGEROUS!

This past weekend a man in Cairns, Australia fell from a rooftop down 8 meters. Luckily, he made it to the hospital in critical condition and is now stable. Owners of a local bar told police that they feared this man was involved in Free-running and the police did some investigation. The Australian Parkour Association was contacted and stated that they had no known traceurs in Cairns.

Regardless of whether parkour was involved or not, I wanted to highlight this news piece to remind you all of the grand danger involved when you mess around on rooftops. Parkour should NOT be practiced on rooftops - any of the things you do up there could easily be replicated at safe ground level.
