A Chinese professional free climber attempted to pose for the perfect shot on Mount Jigong cliff in Chongqing, China. The man, who is identified only as Du, went hiking with his friends when he met the accident. The heart-stopping moment when Du was trying out different poses and then plummeted down was caught on video.
It seems like these days, everyone wants to do the craziest stunts just to get that perfect Instagram-worthy photo. Recently, one hair-raising stunt was pulled off by a Russian model who dangled from a skyscraper in Dubai just to be “Instafamous.” While the model was successful with her attempt, the same thing cannot be said about Du.
This professional free climber named Du wanted to take the perfect photo of him on a cliff.
In the video, Du was seen standing on the rock and attempting to get a good shot. The video then cut to the moment when he was hanging from a cliff yet again posing for the camera. Suddenly, Du lost his grip and fell.
He tried different poses standing on and hanging from a cliff.
But then he lost his footing and his fall from the cliff was caught on video.
“I lost my footing and slid down, but fortunately landed in mud instead of hitting more rocks.”
Witnesses were screaming when Du fell from the cliff, as heard on the video.
Apparently, Du survived the fall and lived to tell about it. He even managed to face the camera to tell about his fall. Du only sustained minor cuts and bruises. He didn’t even have broken bones, according to Carbonated. Still, Du was taken to the hospital to have his minor injuries checked.

And in times when we just can't put off our business for later, we have no choice but to suck it up - no matter how gross or perplexing the structure may be. Just take a look at the ones below.

Pregnant Teenagers Are Doing This Horrible Thing To Keep Their Babies Small
The number of pregnant teenagers has been increasing worldwide. The figures in itself are somehow worrying, as teenage mothers and their babies often face more health care risks in comparison to women who give birth at a later age. Adolescent mothers have a higher risk of developing pregnancy-related high blood pressure while their babies may be born prematurely or have low birth weight. As such, prenatal care for these mothers is crucial.
However, within this increasingly troubling problem lies another concern that must be immediately addressed. Alarmingly, cigarette smoking has become a fad for pregnant Australian teenagers.
Why, you ask? Well, their reason is annoyingly absurd.
According to a 10-year study conducted by a research team from the Australian National University, pregnant adolescents have read from the packaging of cigarettes that smoking reduces a baby's birth weight. Hence, these young mothers-to-be are resorting to smoking despite its ill effects on themselves and on the fetus because they want their babies to be born small....
