Two women were nearly killed in a terrifying incident that was captured on camera when the rope of a swing located on top of a cliff nearly 2,000 metres off the ground unexpectedly broke and they were plunged from the top of a cliff in Dagestan, Russia.
At the beginning of the video, people could be seen cheering each time the two women were swung into the air. However, these cheers soon turned into screams of horror when the cable snapped and the two women fell off the cliff, as reported by Astro Awani.
