A stomach-churning selfie video shows how a group of teenagers scaled to the top of one of Hong Kong's towering skyscrapers - then sat and enjoyed a banana.

As two of the teenagers munch on their fruit, one of the group - photographer Daniel Lau - uses a "selfie stick," a wide-angle camera mounted on a stick, to film himself stood precariously on the building's spire.

Astounding views of Hong Kong's cityscape are visible as the sunglasses-wearing teen fearlessly hold the selfie stick above his head and pans the camera around.

Lau, along with friends Andrew Tso and a girl called A.S. climbed the 1,135 feet of The Center skyscraper- Hong Kong's fifth tallest building.

“Lau, fellow photographer Andrew Tso and A.S. are seen in the video snacking while perched dangerously on the spire of The Centre skyscraper, Hong Kong’s fifth-tallest skyscraper,” reads the video’s description.
