A professional bodybuilder fell to his death during a photo shoot for fitness instructors.

25-year-old Will Kong Wai of Hong Kong, was posing for photos when he decided to go over the railing and stand on a narrow ledge to get the perfect shots.

Wai was standing on the 12th story of the Li Dong building when he lost his footing and fell eight stories. He landed on a porch on the fourth floor of the building.

The incident unfolded at 9:00 a.m. He died at the scene after hitting his head. Police are investigating the incident, but they said that no foul play is suspected.

According to his website, Wai, who is a personal trainer and coach, came in second place at the Olympia Amateur Hong Kong Men’s Physique 2016 event. He recently came in 6th place in the Hong Kong Federation of Bodybuilding and Men’s Physique competition.

Wai uploaded photos of the competition on his Instagram account the night before his tragic death and wrote: “I’m proud that I have given it my all, and everything was done to the best of my ability!”
