Daredevil climbs Space Needle in video

Friday, May 31, 2013by  Jon Osterberg

New video posted on YouTube seems to prove that thrill-seekers climbed to the top of the Space Needle at night.
   Images first appeared online months ago, but skeptics said they were doctored. The new video shows a man walking frightfully near the edge of what appears to be the Space Needle roof, painted Galaxy Gold at the time. He then climbs the Space Needle’s rooftop torch, 605 feet above the ground.
   Climbing the Needle is illegal, and how the men got there is unknown. You’ll find the video link at MyNorthwest.com, but if you have fear of heights, be warned – it might make you queasy.
