Luis Fernando Candela said this was the most intense pic he had and prepared for it for a very long time in the gym. He claimed the rock is 984 feet from the ground and his girlfriend, who took the photo, was hysterical cause he was moments from death.
Many people followed, making pictures of what was called extreme and dangerous or even life threatening.
People believed this until someone found the place in Pedra Branca, Brasil.
While the beach really is 300 meters from the rock, Candela failed to mention that...
...the rock is ONE METER from the ground.
Tourist now crowd in the place once thought to be the "Most extreme selfie experience" cause a fake said so.
