This photo of a daredevil went viral, but...
Luis Fernando Candela has received much attention after a series of photos taken by his girlfriend has gone viral. Here it is described that he takes situps hanging by his feet "10,000 feet" above the ground.

The pictures were taken in November, but got massive attention after the photo agency Caters picked them up.

In the Daily Mail, Luis is quoted saying that he has trained for years for the stunts.

"Talk about rock hard abs. These incredible photographs show a daredevil hanging over a 10,000ft drop with nothing but his abs holding him up. The photographs, taken in Pedra do Telegrafo, Brazil, show daredevil Luis Fernando Candela, hanging from a cliff face with spectacular views of the Pedra Branca national park in the background. Luis, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was photographed by his terrified girlfriend on Saturday 21 November as she watched her boyfriend show incredible strength to hang from the rock."

But there are very uncertain circumstances. The pictures are from Pedra do Telegrafo just outside Rio de Janeiro.

The pictures are obviously taken on various occasions, and one is now revealed as "fake". It is in fact taken at a "famous stone" that tourists flock to to take pictures.

The stone hangs just above the ground, but is positioned in such a way that it is easy to take pictures that look far more breathtaking than it really is.

A quick Google search of the area revealed hundreds of similar images:
