Man holds boy dangerously close to edge of 400ft Seven Sisters cliffs as tourists defy warning signs on Easter Bank Holiday weekend


THIS is the shocking moment a reckless man appeared to celebrate the Bank Holiday by dangling a young boy over a crumbling cliff edge.

Shocked seaside visitors watched him hold the toddler over the 400ft drop – despite cops warning holidaymakers to steer clear of the Severn Sisters cliffs near Eastbourne.

In June 2017 student Hyewon Kim fell to her death while having her picture taken at the beauty spot.

She had asked a stranger to take her picture but as she jumped in the air for a shot, the 23-year-old lost her footing and plummeted 200ft from the edge of Seven Sisters cliffs.

An inquest into her death heard Hyewon, from South Korea, suffered catastrophic injuries in the fall on June 22 this year.

There are signs warning about the instability of the cliffs in the area but an option for more containing foreign languages was considered in July and later rejected.

Coroner Alan Craze recorded a verdict of misadventure.

Two months ago the National Police Air service tweeted a warning after a tourist was seen dangling his legs over the same spot.
