Interesting → Parachute Jump from Moscow TV Tower

On 1 July 2004, Austrian BASE jumper Christina Grubelnik struck the tower during her descent, receiving a concussion and losing consciousness. Her parachute snagged on a lower-level service platform and she was eventually rescued by Russian emergency services. The incident was filmed, and the footage occasionally appears on "caught-on-camera" type reality TV shows.

Ostankino Tower is a free-standing television and radio tower (540 meters (1772 ft) tall) in Moscow, Russia.
Construction began in 1963 and was completed in 1967. It held the record for the tallest free-standing structure in the world for eight years, until the CN Tower was built in Toronto, Canada in 1976.
