French Daredevil Plunges to His Death

I will never understand this fascination with selfies… I honestly do not think I have EVER taken and posted a selfie on social media, let alone doing it from a high-rise.

That was the life of Remi Lucidi, 30, who was known for his high-rise stunts.

Well, Lucidi just fell off a building in Hong Kong from 68 stories high, so he will not be posting any more videos using his selfie stick, reported AP News.

He’s Gone

Lucidi has a stack of videos up on social media, climbing high towers and walking the ledges of high rises all over the world.

According to the South China Morning Post, Lucidi entered the Tregunter Tower and told security that he was there to visit a friend on the 40th floor.

While Lucidi was entering an elevator, security checked in with his so-called “friend,” and they were told that the resident had no idea who this man was.

Security tried to stop him, but he was already on the elevator and headed to the 49th floor, where he exited the elevator and took the steps up to the 68th floor.

By the time security arrived, they found the roof access hatch open, but Lucidi was nowhere to be found… because he had already fallen, reported the New York Post.

A witness in the penthouse suite stated that a man was seen outside the window, banging on the window, apparently asking for help.

The only thing police found when they arrived was Lucidi’s camera, which still has video on it from his other high-rise stunts.

According to the employees at the hostel where Lucidi was staying, he had told them he was just on vacation. One of the employees told the media, “He told me he was going to hike a mountain when I asked where he was going. He said he wanted to hike a lot when he was here.”

Pardon me if I don’t have empathy for someone that does something stupid and dies… FAFO.
