TP 2A foreigner was detained for 10 days after he parachuted from a skyscraper under construction in Beijing's Chaoyang District on April 1.

The man was caught on April 2 and was detained for disturbing public order, Chaoyang police announced on their official Weibo account.

060The parachuter was a Russian national named Alex Pykhov. The skyscraper he jumped from was China Zun, now the tallest building in Beijing, which is still under construction.

The Russian posted a photo on his social media account on April 1 in which China Zun can be seen in the background. He also said in the post that he had just jumped from the 528-meter tower.

061Earlier on March 30, the man had posted a photo of Beijing's CBD area and said he would perform a jump there.

In his latest posts he can be seen pulling off jumps across China, including Guangxi's Nanning. In the video, he jumps from a building under construction, nearly hitting two pedestrians as he lands.

Wind speed and direction in urban areas can change easily, making parachuting there unpredictable and more likely to lead to an accident, he explained.
