DemolitionNews’ editor turns spotlight onto urban exploration craze.
Regular readers will know that I have had a bee in my bonnet for some time over the subject of urban exploration; a craze among young people (mostly male) attempting to achieve Internet fame by breaking into demolition and construction sites to capture a photo or film of themselves stood atop a building with the cityscape stretching away far below.
Well, based on the popularity of our first video “rant” last week, we decided to put our thoughts on urban exploration on film too.
Please share it among your colleagues and friends in the industry. This is a craze that will only be brought to the wider public attention when a young person is seriously injured or – worse – killed in pursuit of Internet fame and notoriety.
