The Chinese adventurer Wu Yongning, known for taking serious "Silva" images from the highest skyscrapers, was killed after falling from the 62nd floor when he was filming one of his famous videos, which is widely available on the Internet, the website said on Tuesday.
Fans of the 26-year-old Wu had already predicted his death after his popular accounts on social networks stopped publishing new material since Nov. 8.
His friend and family finally confirmed that Wu had fallen while recording a video of a new reckless adventure over the 62-storey Huayuan International Center in Changsha, capital of central China's Hunan Province, which led to his death.
A window cleaner at the building revealed that he was filming one of his videos, which was closely monitored on social networking sites, and was clinging to one side of the skyscraper before losing his grip and falling dead body.
The video, which shows Wu on the edge of the building to play his new "creative icon," as he struggles to raise himself, eventually disappears from the camera he used to record his reckless adventure.
Wu's girlfriend Jin Jin revealed that the building was open to the public until the 44th floor, as access cards only allowed access to the Grand Hyatt Hotel. In the absence of security personnel, Wu used the lift to the 40th floor, then climbed up to 20 floors To access the place where the last video was shot.
