The Big Swing


On 6 December 2005, a gentleman named Ryan Young demonstrated the reason extreme sport should never be performed without professional assistance, he also showed the world that common sense does not always dictate our actions.

On a cold winter’s night In Colorado USA, where temperatures drop below freezing, the appropriately named Ryan Young age 22, bundled up in warm clothing, grabbed a length of rope and headed for a construction site on the University of Colorado campus.

The security fence which Ryan was easily able to scale, proudly boasted a sign that said "87 Days without an Accident”.

Young Ryan climbed the 35m high crane, tied the rope to the tip of the boom, swung out into the night sky and ended up in a high speed collision with a campus building on the other side of the street. 

Sadly it didn’t end well, ensuring that the late Ryan Young, shall forever young be.
