A man risked his life for a £280 prize in a skiing competition by dressing up as a burning angel and launching himself down a mountain.
Anton Redkov, 26, was rushed to hospital with second degree burns after igniting his feathered costume with inflammable liquid for the stunt.
The 26-year-old daredevil, who works as a wedding party presenter, skied down the piste while on fire before landing in a pool of ice cold water at a Siberian winter resort. The flames were so strong they were visible underwater, and destroyed Redkov’s entire costume, which reportedly took him a full two weeks to make.
According to The Siberian Times, the 26-year-old managed to drag himself from the water after performing the stunt, where attendants standing by pulled his costume off. By this point, his angel wings were reduced to bare bones, all the feathers having burnt to ashes in the flames.
