The extreme sports fanatic, who posted beautiful photos of his feats on social media, got stuck outside the building.
Reports say that the French daredevil Remi Lucidi died last week when he fell from the 68th floor of a Hong Kong skyscraper.
The 30-year-old, who goes by “Remi Enigma” on Instagram, lost his balance Thursday night outside a penthouse apartment at the 721-foot-tall Tregunter Tower, according to reports from Sky News, the Independent, and the South China Morning Post.
Sky News says that Lucidi got into the high-rise by telling a security guard that he would see a friend on the 40th floor. He then went to the top floor.
Sky News says that surveillance cameras caught Lucidi getting out of the elevator on the 49th floor and then walking up the stairs to the top floor, where a door had been broken down.
The extreme sports fanatic, who posted beautiful photos of his stunts on social media, got stuck outside the building. Sky News says he saw a maid inside and knocked on the window. The maid called the police when he didn’t answer.
But Lucidi lost his balance and died when he fell. According to the Independent and Sky News, his body and sports camera were found on a nearby patio.
A source told The South China Morning Post that it’s possible that he got stuck outside the penthouse while doing an extreme sport in the building. When he knocked on the window for help, he fell to his death by accident.
