The video shows a 26-year-old daredevil, known as the Chinese "first rooftopper", doing pull-ups on the 62nd floor of a Changsha building, Huan province, but then struggling to get back up on the ledge. Suddenly, as his strength oozes away, his hands slip and he lands on a terrace 45 feet below.
The footage of the tragedy was taken from a camera Wu had set up on another part of the building to livestream his landmark stunt, for the 217th time in his life.
The accident happened a month ago, but the death was formerly recorded only on December 8, prompting a wave of tributes from Wu’s fans on social media:
