Conoce a Gigi Wu, la escaladora en bikini que murió congelada

Gigi Wu,  una escaladora que ganó fama por subir fotos suyas en bikini en la cima de montañas, falleció recientemente.

A sus 36 años, el pasado 19 de enero la mujer trató de escalar la Montaña de Jade, una de las más altas de Taiwan.

Lamentablemente, medios locales informaron que falleció en el intento. Cayó de una altura de 20 metros y quedó atrapada en un sitio poco accesible.  

El domingo Gigi logró llamar a los servicios de emergencia, pero el clima impidió que lograran rescatarla. Tardaron casi 30 horas en encontrarla, cuando lo hicieron ya era demasiado tarde.

Al parecer, la escaladora murió de hipotermia por las bajas temperaturas.

La joven taiwanesa tenía miles de seguidores, quienes agradecían su sensuales fotos y admiraban sus hazañas.
