Chinese daredevil plunges to death after skyscraper stunt

A well-known daredevil who has thousands of followers on the social network Weibo plunged to his death while doing a stunt on a skyscraper in China.

26-year-old Wu Yongning died after falling from a 62-story building in the city of Changsha. Yongning had been known for his dramatic videos of himself perched on top of incredibly tall buildings and structures with no safety equipment.

Chinese media reports he was doing a challenge to win a large amount of money when he recorded the video for Weibo. Yongning had martial arts training, and he appeared in a few television and film productions.

Even if you're incredibly strong and talented, don't do what he did. Darwin strikes again.
