Skyscraper climber who fell from 68th floor was warned by fans just weeks before his death

Skyscraper climber who fell from 68th floor was warned by fans just weeks before his death

Remi Lucidi - or Remi Enigma to his fans - died after falling off Hong Kong's Tregunter Tower

A daredevil who fell to his death from a skyscraper in Hong Kong was warned by his followers online of the danger weeks beforehand.

Of course, it would be foolish to suggest that Remi Lucidi wasn’t aware of the dangers of climbing big buildings.

The 30-year-old had often posted photos and footage of his exploits on social media, taking pictures of himself at great height and – as follows – in great danger.

The Frenchman managed to get himself past the security at Hong Kong’s 68 storey Tregunter Tower, telling security guards he was meeting a mate.

Then, CCTV footage shows Lucidi taking the lift up to the 49th floor of the building and then using the stairs to get up to the top floor.

The last time he was seen was by a worker who saw him banging on the windows of the building before he fell 721 feet to his death.

But, just a matter of weeks before that, the stuntman had been warned to take more care by his followers.

He’d shared another video showing him hanging by one arm off a steel tower that was very high up in the air.

It’s not great to watch knowing what eventually happened to him, and particularly if you don’t like heights.

He captioned that video: "Life is simple, get out of your head and get into that moment.⁣"

Underneath that video, people pleaded with him to stay safe.

One even issued the chilling proclamation: "You will tell God why you risked your precious and only life for this."

Responding to that particular comment, Remi wrote: "Thanks for the tip."

On Thursday, the security team looking for Remi found that one of the hatches to the outside of the building was open, and it is assumed that he became trapped outside and wanted to get help before he fell and died.

A camera with footage from Remi’s other stunts was found at the scene.

The owner of a hostel that he’d been staying at before his death described Lucidi as a ‘friendly and humble guy’.

Gurjit Kaur said: "He was healthy and fit and happy-faced. I feel very sad."

Another person who spoke to him before the final stunt said: "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."

Tributes have poured in for the Frenchman since his death, with one person writing: "Sad news no one ever wants to hear about a fellow explorer.”

Another said: "Bro went out doing what he loved! He lived his life fully. Not many can say that."
