A Hong Kong fitness trainer fell to his death from a commercial block in Central while standing on railings to take photos of two other instructors on Thursday morning.

The tragedy happened on the 12th floor of Li Dong Building in Li Yuen Street East.

Will Kong Wai, 25, was standing on railings to get a better position to take photographs when he fell at about 9am.

The trainer was helping a 38-year-old photographer take promotional pictures of two other fitness instructors – an expatriate aged 27 and a 25-year-old Hong Kong woman -according to police.

The victim is believed to have lost his balance and fell off the building, landing on the podium on the fourth floor of the building. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

It is understood Kong had been working as a freelance trainer in a fitness centre in the same building for less than two months.

According to his Facebook page, Kong emerged second in the Olympia Amateur Hong Kong Men’s Physique 2016 event and was sixth in this year’s Hong Kong Federation of Body Building and Fitness Hong Kong Men’s Physique competition.

He previously had four years of experience at one of Hong Kong’s top personal training gyms.
