He took the risk and lost.
Wu Yongning had gained notoriety for climbing skyscrapers with no safety gear, doing crazy stunts while suspended above an urban background.
The 26-year-old seemed fearless in the videos he posted on Weibo.
He was participating in a “rooftopping” challenge when he fell to his death November 8th. He was competing against other daredevils for a 100,000 yuan ($15,000).
His uncle, Feng Shengliang, said “He planned to propose to his girlfriend (the day after the challenge)” and “He needed the money for the wedding, and for medical treatment for his ailing mother.”
