French daredevil falls to his death from Hong Kong tower block

Police are investigating whether Remi Lucidi, 30, died while practicing extreme sports on Tregunter Tower in Hong Kong

In a tragic incident in Hong Kong, the extreme sports enthusiast Remi Lucidi, also known as Remi Enigma, lost his life after falling from the 68th-story of the Tregunter Tower complex, according to the South China Morning Post.

The 30-year-old French daredevil was pursuing his passion for climbing when the unfortunate accident occurred.

Lucidi arrived at the Tregunter Tower complex around 6 p.m. and claimed he was visiting a friend residing on the 40th floor.

However, suspicions arose when a security officer attempted to apprehend him after confirming that the alleged friend was not acquainted with Lucidi.

By that time, the adventurous climber had already secured an elevator, making it challenging for the security officer to catch up.

Security footage later revealed Lucidi’s movements as he ascended to the 49th floor and continued his ascent via the stairs towards the building’s pinnacle.

It was on the 68th floor where he tragically fell. Despite immediate attention, Remi Lucidi was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities in Hong Kong launched an investigation into the incident. Witnesses stated that the hatch leading to the roof was found open, raising speculation that Lucidi might have ventured onto the rooftop.

However, he was nowhere to be found, and it remains unclear how he ended up on the outside of the penthouse window.

At 7:38 p.m., a maid from the complex’s penthouse reported hearing a tapping sound on the window, which later turned out to be Lucidi seeking help.

Unfortunately, by then, it was too late to prevent the devastating outcome.

As investigators searched the scene, they discovered Lucidi’s camera, which contained footage of his other death-defying stunts and adventures.

The authorities have yet to release an official cause of death.

A worker at the hostel where Lucidi stayed in Hong Kong shared that the thrill-seeker had mentioned his vacation plans in the city.

However, no further details about the purpose of his visit have been revealed.

Donald Trump was whisked off the stage at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania after loud noises rang through the crowd.

Trump was showing off a chart of border crossing numbers when bangs started ringing through the crowd. Trump could be seen reaching with his right hand toward his neck. There appeared to be blood on his face.

He quickly ducked behind the riser as agents from his protective detail rushed the stage and screams rang out from the crowd. The bangs continued as agents tended to him on stage.

His motorcade has left the venue.

In a statement, Trump says he is “fine” and says he is being checked at a medical facility.

Donald Trump was safe, the U.S. Secret Service and his campaign said on Saturday after multiple shots rang out at a rally by the Republican presidential candidate in Pennsylvania as video showed Trump grimacing and raising a hand to his right ear.
The former president had just started his speech when gunshots erupted and Trump and other rally attendees hit the deck. Secret Service agents swarmed around him and live video showed blood on the right side of Trump’s face and ear.
 
Trump repeatedly raised his fist in the air, with an American flag visible behind him, as security ushered him away.
“The Secret Service has implemented protective measures and the former president is safe,” a spokesperson for the agency said on X after what it called an incident.
“This is now an active Secret Service investigation and further information will be released when available.”
