This past July, acrobat Seanna Sharpe and magician Thomas "Savage" Skinner left people in awe as they performed a dangerous stunt atop the Williamsburg Bridge dubbed "Risk Life For Flight." The two were promptly arrested and charged with felony reckless endangerment, which carried up to a seven year prison sentence. Now, artist RonenV has assembled footage from onlookers and the performers (including a never-before seen camera angle from 285 feet over the train traffic) to create the definitive account of their incredible act that day. Watch it below:
The video concludes with a fitting post-script—initially, the two were charged with reckless endangerment, a class A felony, and used the Philippe Petit defense, based on the man who walked between the twin towers in 1974 and had his charges dropped, as precedent for their stunt. According to the video, they were given a standing ovation at Rikers, their bail money was raised on Twitter in under an hour, charges were reduced to a misdemeanor, and they were given a plea deal: five free performances for children.
