The Chinese ‘rooftopper’ died on November 8 but his death was only made public this week. Followers on social media began to ask questions after no new videos of Wu Yongning scaling skyscrapers had been posted in a month. This prompted his family to finally reveal his death.

Wu Yongning started ‘rooftopping’ after he discovered that he could make more money by posting daredevil videos online. Followers paid him to scale scry heights and post photos and videos of his stunts. This usually involved doing pull-ups on top of skyscrapers.

But on November 8, China’s first ‘rooftopper’ inadvertently made his final video.

Scaling the Huayuan International Centre in Changsha, the capital of Huan Province, Wu Yongning could not raise himself up. Video from the camera he set up shows him losing his grip and falling. His body was later found by window cleaners on a terrace below.
