This is the moment an internet star known as ‘China’s first roof-topper’ fell to his death from the top of a 62-storey skyscraper.
Wu Yongning, 26, was doing pull-ups at the top of the Huayuan International Centre in Changsha, the capital of Huan Province, when he lost his grip and fell.
Harrowing footage captured the moment he let go, plunging 45ft on to a terrace below where his body was later found by a window cleaner.
Wu Yongning’s fiancée, who refers to herself as Jin Jin, told the Beijing News that he was due to ask her parents’ permission to marry her two days after the stunt.
Jin Jin told the newspaper that he planned to bring her family a bridal gift of 80,000 yuan (£9,000), roughly the same amount he was due to earn from the video.
Local authorities investigating the case described it as an ‘accident’ and have already ruled out foul play.On live-streaming video site ‘Volcano’, Wu had one million followers and 300 videos.
He held 217 live-streaming sessions and was paid around 55,000 yuan (£6,000) for doing so. Viewers paid him with virtual currency if they liked the videos.
