Dangerous stunts get thumbs-down from video platforms

By Zhang Zhihao | China Daily | Updated: 2017-12-12 07:30

Multiple social media and video streaming platforms will limit who can view videos that depict dangerous stunts - and may even prohibit such material - in an effort to discourage imitators.

In November, daredevil stunt climber Wu Yongning fell to his death while scaling a skyscraper in Changsha, Hunan province. Wu, 26, had more than 1.3 million followers on social media who regularly devoured his breathtaking videos and photos. He climbed with no protective gear.

Last month, Wu's account on Sina Weibo stopped updating, leading followers to worry about his well-being.
