A tragic incident has occurred in Hong Kong as a French stuntman named Remi Lucidi reportedly fell from the 68th floor of a skyscraper, resulting in his death. The daredevil, known for his participation in extreme sports, was at the Tregunter Tower complex at the time of the accident. Lucidi had arrived at the building in the evening and informed the security guard that he was visiting a friend on the 40th floor. However, he somehow ended up on a top floor where he got trapped outside a penthouse on the 68th floor. Desperately knocking on a window, he startled a maid inside before tragically losing his footing and falling, instantaneously losing his life.
Authorities in Hong Kong state that the building’s security guard had attempted to question Lucidi about his claim of visiting a friend on the 40th floor, but the stuntman had already caught an elevator by that time. When the police arrived at the scene, they discovered Lucidi’s sports camera, which contained videos of his extreme sports exploits. The official cause of his death and a formal statement from the Hong Kong police are still awaited.
Just before the incident, Lucidi had shared a photograph of the Hong Kong skyline on his Instagram profile. The social media page of the daredevil reveals that he has attempted stunts in various parts of the world, including Bulgaria, Portugal, France, Ukraine, and Dubai. In one of his Instagram photos, he can be seen standing atop a skyscraper overlooking the Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai. His passion for climbing skyscrapers began in 2016, and since then, he has traveled around the globe in pursuit of different kinds of stunts.
This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the risks that stunt performers undertake in their pursuit of adrenaline-fueled adventures and breathtaking experiences. While these individuals possess immense skill and courage, accidents can still occur, often resulting in devastating consequences. The loss of Remi Lucidi is a sobering reminder of the dangers involved in extreme sports and the need for safety precautions. His death is a profound loss to the daredevil community and a heartbreaking tragedy for his loved ones. May his soul rest in peace.
