This guy is crazy Dubai needs to stop this! I saw alot of other similar daredevil (stupid) videos lately happening in the tallest block .. days ago someone was jumping around on the roof of Cayan Tower and some other time a group of idiots where climbing Elite Residences and Princess Tower! This can kill pedestrians and passengers going through the tallest block, what if something or someone fell off one of these towers!!

Ok seriously, how can you just go on a construction site, all the way up to the top of the tower and in the crane cabin if you're not the crane operator?

Lack of money due to the last financial crisis, on hold or almost on hold for a time. And perhaps not enough demand.

Wow, getting a strong 80s Miami vibe from Ocean Heights in that picture. Ironically I'm listening to retrowave as I type this; very appropriate.
