Daredevil known for high-rise stunts dead after falling from 68th floor

A French man who is known for extreme sports is dead after falling off the 68th-story of Hong Kong residential.

Remi Lucidi, 30, was climbing the Tregunter Tower complex when the man fell according to the South China Morning Post.

Lucidi, known online as Remi Enigma, was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Hong Kong officials, Lucidi arrived at the building around 6 p.m. and told the security guard that he was visiting a friend on the 40th floor.

A security officer attempted to apprehend Lucidi after the alleged friend confirmed he was not acquainted with Lucidi — but by then the stuntman had already secured an elevator.

Security footage later glimpsed Lucidi arriving on the 49th floor and then again taking the stairs up to the top of the building.

According to those in pursuit of Lucidi, they found the hatch leading to the roof open, but he was nowhere in sight.

Police say the man was last seen alive at 7:38 p.m. when he tapped on the window of the complex’s penthouse, prompting a maid to call the police.

The source — which has not been identified — said that police believe Lucidi was trapped outside of the penthouse and was banging on the window for help before the unfortunate accident.

A source close to the incident revealed that police found Lucidi’s camera at the scene and it contained videos of his other death-defying acts.

Police have yet to issue an official cause of death.

According to Gurjit Kaur, owner of the hostel where Lucidi was reportedly boarded, the guest was a “friendly and humble guy.”

“He was healthy and fit and happy-faced,” Kaur told the news outlet. “I feel very sad.”

A worker at the hostel claimed that he had spoken with Lucidi several times before his death and that he had told him that the man was visiting Hong Kong on vacation.

“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,” said the worker.

Several of Lucidi’s fans took to social media to express their own grief.

“Rip brother,” said one Instagram follower. “Sad news no one ever wants to hear about a fellow explorer.”

” I don’t wanna believe it Remi I don’t want to believe it,” cried another. “Rest easy bro I love you.”

“You’ll never leave us, you’re unique,” said a third person.
