I cringe every time I see someone posing for a picture in a dangerous situation. I just hope my kids are never this stupid, if the occasion arises.

You know what I'm talking about. People posing on ledges or next to wild animals. I've seen pictures of people posing by alligators, close to bears, standing or sometimes hanging from cliffs.

This video seems to be fairly innocent in comparison. A woman is with a friend out on a cliff overlooking the Grand Canyon. The woman posing seems to be on solid, safe ground but when the one taking the picture backs up to snap the photo, she almost plunges into the canyon.

A guy videoing the two women just happened to catch the almost tragic slip on video.  Check it out.
