Me either! Even just watching it is... well.

Vertigo is really something strange. I'll have it anytime I'm up a ladder, rock climbing, on a platform, on sightseeing place at the edge of a mountain (even with fences) or such... however, I have ZERO problem sitting on edge of the floor of a helicopter with open doors and my feet out on the skids, which I do quite often and love...

I have seen that video before. And just as then, I wanted to put a six point harness on my chair... I am nervous on a second floor balcony if the guardrail is not at least 4 foot high, and they just climb around like they were two feet over a cushion.
Do they at least have parachutes? I reckon that would work as a safety device at least once they are outside the cage.

Or reeling them down from a helicopter, that could work, too.

I once met a former PJ who, in his free time, used to go up those things and then jump off... pretty crazy guy, I don't even wanna come near the things, but there seem to be a bunch around here in Fl, which'll be a problem when doing night tactical nav...

That video was the intro to a fall safty class I took last year.  Did you all notice at the end where he has to let go with both hands to rig the final tie off point?  Hope they pay him well and have a good life insurance policy for his family.
