Q: Extreme sport. PRC china's first guy to fall off rooftop.

 

Location, Changsha. 1pm, Nov 8, 2017. Some 60 floors building. Video footage (setup and taken by himself) came out yesterday (Dec 10, 2017).  Video title is OP's title.

 

Courage, to show laowais that dalurens (the 'we' thing, one does it=1.4 billion do it) can do it? Face......yeah right....except not much this time.....National hero who dies for his country or moron or what?

Oh shit ! That was probably always going to happen sooner or later, but still.

 

The point where he realized he couldn't pull himself back up over the edge must have been terrifying.

couldn't bring myself to watch it all,,, I got up to the point where he was hanging over the edge and doing pull-ups,,,, so, I'm guessing he fell.   Damn,,,   why do something so dumb ??  so stupid, so purposeless.  oh well,,,,  kids do dumb things.  I did something similar as a kid and looking back I could have been dead as a doorknob in a split-second, but fate was on my side when it just have easily could have gone the other way.  We were in our teens and we used to climb up to the top of the local water tower and hang-out there,,,  well, as if that wasn't dumb enough, we used to take turns seeing who would walk out the furthest to the edge.  I got pretty near the edge a few times.  Looking back I shudder.   Oh well,, kids do stupid things.  To this day I'm scared of heights, what do they call it?  something phobia....

I was just reading about this guy in another news article.

 

His family was poor, he needed money to get married and help the family etc, it doesn't look like he had many options in life and he was set to get a big payout for this stunt.

 

It was obviously still a really bad judgment call on his part but I can understand him deciding to roll the dice again with this stunt.

 

RIP

If you go to the end after he falls, it sounds like he lands somewhere... so that's probably the place 10m down.

 

And, Earthi - what's the China thing got to do with it??? As the guys said above - lots of people in their teens and 20s do stupid shit. Nationality has nothing to do with it!!!!

Quick - tell me how nationality and culture attributed to the above people's deaths, and how it's pathetic how Americans (and others in there) are so face crazy!

I have seen his videos and hate to comment like this ... but this was an accident waiting to happen. Just a matter of time when his luck ran out.

Someone told me he started doing this to raise money for his sick mom.

All said and done, this was a very tragic accident and a life is lost.

Authorities should hove done something well in time to stop this nonsensical stunts.

Now its too late, but can / should be a lesson for others.
