Could this be the SCARIEST ride EVER? Watch the moment a man makes a stomach-churning drop and flies through midair
Even the most adventurous thrill seekers will think twice before attempting this breathtaking ride.
This is the stomach-churning moment a man took a dizzying 350-metre fall from the top of China’s Aizhai Suspension Bridge, the thirteenth highest bridge in the world.
In a video posted on Instagramthe scene unfolds with an anonymous daredevil strapped to a flimsy chair-like object while floating high above green land and a busy highway.
The ride, which has since been dubbed “the craziest ride ever,” is slowly but surely gently lowered, giving the allusion that all is calm.
But at the very last moment, the man is released from the sky and plunged into the unknown, as we watch him swing through the air at intense speed.

And just as we sit on the edge of our seats, eager to see what awaits us, the sound of a bell signals the start of the hair-raising fall.
The moment was apparently too much to bear for some viewers, with one person claiming he immediately had an ‘anxiety attack’.
Just before the big jump you see the man mumbling to himself, perhaps trying to trick himself into the crazy act.
An enthusiastic crowd quickly gathered around the bridge to capture the moment, with some even grabbing their phones to record it.
You can hear people singing, adding to the already terrifying tension. Meanwhile, the unknown man remains stoic and gives absolutely no clues as to what is going through his mind.

He spirals downward before the ride sends him in a different direction, as viewers watch him weave across the vast expanse of Greenland and even down a busy highway.
The video has since racked up 229,000 likes and more than 3,000 comments.
One person wrote in apparent disbelief about the ride: ‘Doesn’t look very safe. Dead drop in danger. No thank you, I’ll pass.

Another joked: ‘He must be glad he wore the dark trousers that day.’
“The anxiety attack I had watching it,” added another.
Meanwhile, someone commented: ‘As they say, there is a very fine line between bravery and stupidity.’
The Aizhai Bridge is a suspension bridge over the Baotou-Maoming Expressway near Jishou, Hunan, in China.
The moment was apparently too much for some viewers, with one person claiming he immediately had an ‘anxiety attack’.
The bridge was built as part of a highway from Chongqing Municipality in southwest China to Changsha and is one of the world’s longest tunnel-to-tunnel bridges.
The main span of the bridge extends for 3,760 ft and maintains a gruesome height of 1,102 ft.
It is the thirteenth highest bridge in the world and the nineteenth longest suspension bridge in the world.
