WILD RIDE: Workers Cling On As Aerial Platform Slams Against Building In Howling Winds

This is the moment workers cling on for dear life as their aerial platform is slammed against the side of a building during strong winds.

The scary scene was filmed in the city of Baoding in the Chinese province of Hebei on 23rd June.

According to reports, two cables broke on the aerial platform in strong winds and the team of workers was left clinging on as it swung wildly against the building.
