VIDEO: Daredevils criticised for putting themselves and others in danger in Aberdeen city centre

A pair of daredevils have been criticised for putting “themselves and others in significant danger” after they climbed a city centre crane whilst pretending to drink from a vodka bottle.

Robbie Borthwick, 21, and Elvis Bogdanovs, 19, filmed themselves drinking water the bottle while sitting on the Aberdeen City War Memorial before jumping over a fence and scaling a crane at the construction site for Dandara’s £20million student development at the Triple Kirks.

Mr Bogdanovs and Mr Borthwick had previously climbed floodlights at Aberdeen Football Club and scaled St Nicholas Kirk colonnade on Union Street – all without safety equipment.

Ryan Houghton, councillor for the George Street and Harbour ward where the stunt took place said: “They’re putting not only themselves but others in significant danger.

Mr Borthwick said the liquid in the bottle was water, and urged people not to repeat his actions.

He added: “Through the videos that I make, I want to show people they can achieve their dreams.

“Although it is not a professionally recognised sport, it is similar to the risks a race car driver would face.

“I would like to apologise to anybody who has been distressed.”

The video has been viewed more than 14,000 times on Facebook.

A spokesman for Dandara said: “The two young men depicted in footage posted online trespassed on a secure site to which there is no right of access for members of the public, and as a result of their actions we are in contact with Police Scotland.

“While they clearly have no concern for their own safety, such irresponsible behaviour also demonstrates an appalling disregard for the safety of emergency service or site security staff who may have been asked to respond to the incident.”
