Travel bloggers Kelly Castille, 33, and Kody Workman, 32, who are based in Bali, have been slammed for this picture which many on Instagram have described as dangerous and stupid for likes.

The photograph shows Kelly bravely hanging off the edge of a three-story swimming pool while kissing boyfriend Kody who was standing in the water and holding her up by the arms, leaving her legs and torso to dangle freely.

But the couple have defended the image, insisting that they were 'super slow and cautious' when setting up the shot, and adding that they had no fear while doing the stunt because they are 'full of trust for each other'.

'It was a blast setting this up,' Kelly said. 'Kody had a very good hold of me. We trust each other entirely. It was such an amazing feeling to have this come out exactly as we planned. We are safe and sound.'
