Is this the scariest selfie ever? Teens take photos on top of skyscraper

Talk about taking selfies to new heights.

Students in Hong Kong have started a craze of taking selfies on top of skyscrapers in the city.



In a YouTube video, which has already amassed 500,000 hits since it was uploaded this week, three students have snapped death defying shots of themselves at the top of Hong Kong's fifth tallest buildiung, The Center.

"I'm an explorer," said Daniel Lau, one of the three who climbed to the top of The Center. A student, he said roof-topping was "a getaway from my structured life".

 Mr Lau said he had been inspired by Russian climbers who started the craze.
