People Are Totally Freaking Out Over This Swing

A bucket list staple for intrepid travelers, Hawaii’s Haiku Stairs attract hundreds of adventurers every year.

This hiking trail on the island of O’ahu is made up of almost 4,000 steps, and it provides climbers with unbeatable views from atop the Ko’olau mountain range. The only catch? Sadly, it’s been illegal to use the trail since 1987, and a storm rendered the stairs totally unsafe in 2015.

And if you know anything whatsoever about humans, you know that plenty of people go right ahead and ignore all of that nonsense on a daily basis.

In fact, one search on Yelp yields hundreds of reviews written by daredevils who decided to climb the Haiku Stairs anyway.

One such daredevil built a swing alongside the trail because that doesn’t sound like a terrible idea at all.

As you might imagine, young people have taken it upon themselves to say, “You know what? I’m going to swing on it because who even values human life, am I right?”
