Video has emerged online showing a young man taking his life into his own hands in the Grampians.
The slow-motion footage shows a man performing a backflip on a cliff ledge at Boroka Lookout in the Grampians.
The man lands safely but stumbles back towards the cliff edge when he does so.
Stawell SES controller Alan Blight described the action as "ludicrous".
"It is just crazy, people have died falling from that ledge in the past," he said.
"It was only a few years ago we had to recover the body of a lady who lost balance and tumbled over the edge.
"If someone falls from that ledge we won't be called out for a rescue, it will be for a body recovery. It is quite a long way down to rocks and trees below.
"All emergency services are impacted in that situation."
Earlier in the year, Northern Grampians police issued a warning for people taking "selfish selfies" at the national park.
"A lot of it is for Instagram photos and social media - it is beyond belief people would put their lives at risk just for some 'likes' online," Mr Blight said.
Like many popular lookout sites in the Grampians, Boroka has a metal fence to try and prevent visitors from entering dangerous areas.
"Behind the fences are where the best views are anyway," Mr Blight said.
The Stawell Times-News has chosen not to share the video footage.
