Video of the Day: Climber Evades Security, Tops 2K-Foot Tall Chinese Tower

Daredevil Keow Wee Loong recently, and without safety equipment, climbed to the top of the Ping An International Finance Center in Shenzhen, which upon completion in 2016 will be China's second tallest building. The expert climber—in the past few months he's ascended Malysia's IB Tower and a Hong Kong Ferris wheel—ran into some trouble in the form of a security guard on the building's 55th floor.

 “I accidentally bumped into a guard at level 55 and he alerted the guard on the ground floor to come up and look for me floor by floor,” he wrote. “It was like playing hide and seek in a 115-story building with the guard, they were looking for a needle in a haystack.” Keow dedicated this feat to victims of Air Asia 8501, which crashed last December. When completed, Ping An FIC will tower 2,000 feet above Shenzhen.
