Well, she should have seen this coming. A Taiwanese woman known as the “Bikini Climber” because she often climbed mountains in bikinis was found frozen and dead after a 20-meter-fall, according to reports.
Gigi Wu, 36, was renowned in the east for climbing mountains in a bikini and posting sexy photos from mountain peaks. But, apparently, she made one excursion too many.
Eight days into a 25-day solo hike on Saturday Wu reportedly called a friend to say she’d fell down a ravine in Central Taiwan’s Yushan Mountain. She also said she was trapped at the bottom of the ravine with a broken leg and could not get out, Taiwan News reported (via the New York Post).
Due to weather conditions, rescuers could not reach Wu for over a day.
Authorities said that the temperatures had fallen to freezing overnight.
By the time Wu was fund she had already died from exposure.
According to the Post:
Wu, who also went by Wu Chi-yun, was a local social-media star who posed on some of Taiwan’s highest peaks in barely-there outfits.
In one image, she stands in a rainbow bikini and blue hat, with treacherous boulders in the background.
On Christmas Eve, she shared an image showing her scratched-up legs after being injured in a fall that she said she was lucky to survive.
Mark this as yet another person essentially committing suicide in pursuit of Internet and social media fame.
Yep, just another victim of the social media age.
