The act of free climbing large structures and doing dangerous maneuvers on top of skyscrapers has become a viral sensation over the last few years. Those with nerves of steal have attempted some of the craziest, most dangerous stunts – thousands of feet in the air – just for social media views. Sadly, not all of these hardcore adrenaline junkies always complete the crazy stunts. Mistakes happen and a stupid high rise stunt can quickly turn into a life or death situation.
That was the case when a recent dare devil attempted to dangle from the top of a skyscraper. He lost his footing and was unable to recover, sadly falling to his death.
Wu Yongning became famous in China by free-climbing and doing other dangerous stunts without nets or safety equipment.
He posted his death-defying feats to Chinese social network Weibo, where people became enamored by his recklessness and bravery.
