In a chilling video, which has gone viral on social media, two women can be seen plunging off the top of a 6,300-feet-high cliff in Russia after the swing breaks in which they were riding.
One of the chains of the cliff swing snapped, sending the women down the cliff. The incident occurred at Sulak Canyon in Russia’s Dagestan region.
However, the women escaped with minor bruises and scratches, as their fall was interrupted by a wooden panel located just beyond the cliff edge, a Daily Mail report said.

Prompt action by the onlookers and relatives in lifting the women up proved fruitful in saving their lives. The local police are also investigating the incident, as per media reports.
The local authorities are also looking to remove the swings, which were built and operated without proper safety standards.
The Sulak Canyon in Russia is around 620 metres deeper than the Tara River Canyon in Europe and over 63 meters deeper than the Grand Canyon in the United States.
