Skydiving for the thrifty

Some bored residents in Russia’s Far East have found a novel way of entertaining themselves during the winter months: jumping off the top of an apartment block.

In the city of Magadan a few men were seen jumping five stories off the roof of a building, just for fun.

The snow outside was so deep it cushioned their fall.

The men were filmed by a neighbour, who was able to witness this poor man’s form of skydiving.
