DUBAI: The concerned authorities in Dubai Police are investigating a video posted on Thursday on social networking sites and used by a number of foreign newspapers such as the Daily Mail showing a 23-year-old Russian model girl named Viktoria Odintcova (Vicky) taking selfies from the top of a skyscraper in the Dubai Marina.

Several stunning photos were taken of the girl dangling from the skyscraper with a man holding her hand or leaning out into the air. In addition, a full stunning video was captured of the girl while trying to climb up and tilt down the skyscraper.

Major General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said Dubai Police had previously warned people against doing such hazardous actions without notifying the concerned authorities to enable them to take the necessary procedures for protecting the fans of this hobby.

“This is against the rules and regulations in force in the UAE because it falls under jeopardising one’s life,” he said, adding that in case the competent authorities have not been informed of one’s desire to take such kind of photos, one will face the charge of violating the rules and regulations. Vicky, who had recently posted her photos and video on her page on Instagram, has around 3 million followers.
