Popular Chinese stuntman dies after falling off building
BEIJING: In a fatal accident, a a popular Internet star known as ‘China’s first rooftopper’ died after falling from the top of a 62-storeyed skyscraper in Changsha.
The incident came to light after his body was found by a window cleaner onto a terrace below. Wu Yongning was trying out a stunt and doing pull-ups on top of the Huayuan International Centre in Changsha, the capital of Huan Province, when he lost his grip and fell.
The scene was recorded by a camera Wu had installed on the other part of the building to capture the daring stunt, according to a Dailymail report.
It was only this year that Wu, who previously worked as a lowly paid background actor in various films in China, became a video blogger.
Though the 26-year-old died on November 8, his death was confirmed by his family members on December 8 as his fans on social media got perturbed when no new videos were posted by the vlogger.
