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.

Witnesses were screaming when Du fell from the cliff, as heard on the video.
