Locals called police. The teenager told officers at the scene that this was not his first experience of extreme activities. 

'I am into this kind of extreme things, I have been doing it for several years now,' he said. 

Police warned him of the dangers 'of such thoughtless and hasty actions which can cause grave traumas and fractures'.
