A 30-year-old stuntman was found dead in Hong Kong after what is believed to be a failed stunt.
Remi Lucidi was discovered on a patio at an apartment block in the city’s Mid-Levels area.
No suicide note was found at the scene and Hong Kong police did an initial investigation which resulted in them ruling out suicide.
Lucidi was seen entering the apartment block after telling security he was there to visit a friend on the 40th floor. Instead, he took the lift to the 49th floor and then proceeded to access the stairs to the top floor.
Lucidi was popular on social media where he posted under the name Remi Enigma. He often posted photos showing his view while he is on top of tall structures around the globe.
Police found his body after security was phoned to attend to a gas leak. When they arrived, the found Lucidi’s body outside the apartment. It appears that he broke a gas pipe during his fall.
The Guardian reports that supporters mourned him on social media. Lucidi posted a photo of Hong Kong’s night view a week ago on Instagram and tagged the location as Times Square in the Causeway bay shopping district.
