Daredevil scales 115-storey structure set to become China’s tallest building
A daredevil climber has scaled a 115-STOREY structure which is set to become the tallest building in China.
Keow Wee Loong, 26, secretly made it to the top of the Ping An International Finance Centre construction site in Shenzhen, China.
After reaching the summit the intrepid explorer made his way outside and took these incredible images without any safety equipment.
The building will be 2165ft high when upon completion in 2016 and will stand second only to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai for height.
Keow revealed the biggest dangers he faced were sub-zero temperatures and strong gusts of wind which could have been fatal.
The Malaysian thrill-seeker has climbed many of Asia’s tallest towers – often dedicating them to certain causes.
This climb was dedicated to the victims of AirAsia Flight 8501 which crashed on December 28.
Keow, who wore a red AirAsia cap throughout the climb, lost a friend in the crash which also claimed 161 other lives.
He said: “I was interested to know how it would look standing on top of the second-tallest building in the world.
“My flight left Malaysia on December 28 around 6am – around the same time as the flight which crashed from Surabaya to Singapore.
“While I was on the plane I bought a new AirAsia cap which I had no intention of wearing – I just like the colour red.
“When I reached my hotel the missing plane was all over the news and I felt stunned.
“Before I climbed the building a few days later I decided to put the cap on and dedicate this climb to all victims on that flight.”
