Did this bro not have one friend that said, ‘That’s probably not a great idea’? Not ONE?
This 26-year old daredevil was an internet star for his stunts that he would pull on the tops of buildings.
The photos are stunning:
But it’s obvious that things can go wrong very, very wrong very, very quickly with this kind of thing.
This is the moment an internet star known as ‘China’s first rooftopper’ 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, moments before his death, plunging 45ft on to a terrace below where his body was later found by a window cleaner.
The incident was captured on a camera that Wu had placed on another part of the building to record himself.

The news was devastating to his girlfriend.
Wu Yongning’s girlfriend, 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.
Wu died on November 8 but his death was only confirmed by family members on December 8 after fans became concerned that no videos had been posted to his social media account for a month.
Wu made his money from his videos because of the significant audience that he had.
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.

It’s tremendously sad that a young man lost his life in such a senseless way.
And he did it to make a buck.
Here at ClashDaily, we love the badasses, but that doesn’t mean that you should be reckless.
And if your friend says your reckless stunt is stupid — listen to that friend.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
