The Russian model who cheated death by hanging off the 1,000ft-tall Cayan Tower in Dubai was given a sound telling off by her parents and made to promise never to be so reckless again.
Viki Odintcova, 23, told that she ignored her own ‘fear of heights’ to risk her life by clinging to a man by the hand with no safety harness.
The Dubai authorities formally warned her against repeating her death defying antics.
Speaking from Moscow, Odintcova claimed the terrifying scene was a spur of the moment plan agreed with photographer Alexander Mavrin, well-known in Russia for glamour and nude shoots.
‘We usually try to create interesting ideas for photo shoots,’ said the model, who posed fully clothed last year for Russian Playboy, although she is pictured naked elsewhere.

Her 51-year-old father Sergey proudly posted her Playboy cover on his social media.’The whole thing was quite spontaneous,’ she said of the Cayan Tower stunt.
Spontaneous: Moscow-born Odintcova insisted the terrifying scene, photographer by glamour and nude photographer Alexander Mavrin, was completely spur of the moment – and they had not rehearsed it
‘We hadn’t thought about it, or rehearsed it, but just went the day after we thought about it to shoot the video and take the pictures.’
She revealed the bearded man who held her life in his hand was Siberian-born Oleg Cricket, real name Oleg Sherstyachenko, 25, an accomplished stuntman who is well known for his own death-defying antics.
‘Oleg is a professional in what he does, so we just made up our minds, went there and did it. I wasn’t thinking whether I trust him or not.’
‘I wasn’t afraid and didn’t panic,’ she insisted. I was calm when I was on the top of the building. It wasn’t until I got down from the roof that I fully realised what had just happened -and how scary it was. I got to ground level and it sank in that this was so dangerous, and that it could lead to terrible negative consequence. And I’m sure I will not do it again. It was a once in a lifetime thing. That was enough.’
‘My parents saw the video and they had very mixed feelings about it. But in the end they could do nothing other than accept it, after I promised them never to do it again.’
Mavrin, 31, is from St Petersburg and is known as glamour photographer who travels with his models around the world. A 2015 picture of two women led to his site being banned by a Russian regulator as it was seen as promoting homosexuality. He told one interview he ‘never’ sleeps with his models.
