Russian paraglider unsucessfully jumps from highest building

Dulri Ruzov was here with his team to pass on a message of peace in Pakistan and attempted to jump from the rooftop of the MCB building in the city's biggest business district.

"Unfortunately, I am lightweight and the winds were very strong today so I was not successful but I hope I have achieved my task of passing on the message of peace to people of Pakistan," Ruzov told reporters after his failed bid.

Ruzov was blown away by the strong winds after his parachute didn't open properly and it got entangled in wires of an adjacent building.

But after hanging perilously for sometime Ruzov was brought down safely and appeared in high spirits.
Ruzov said he had come to Karachi to give a message to the world that Pakistan was a peaceful place and they should not isolate it.

Ruzov said he had successfully attempted a jump from a tall building two weeks ago in Sweden.

"Me and my team travel around the world to pass the message of peace and we draw attention of the people and media with our paragliding skills," he added.
