TV reporter dead in 25-story fall from tower

The TV reporter, who fell from the roof of a 25-story building yesterday as he was shooting in east China's Zhejiang Province yesterday, died this morning, according to a local TV official.

Bao Cunliang, 38, a Wenzhou TV Station reporter, died at 2:10 am at the Wenzhou Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicines. He fell off the station's building at 8:45 am yesterday, said Dong Jinghai, news director of the city-level TV station.

Bao was shooting streets in the rain by himself, but the view was obstructed by the wall surrounding the roof. Bao stood on the wall which was more than one meter high and only 20 cm wide, Dong said.

Dong said there was a strong wind at the time, but it was not clear whether the wind might have caused the reporter to fall.

Bao fell on the windshield of a car and was rushed to the hospital. His camera was smashed and lay in debris around him. He suffered brain and chest injuries in addition to several fractures.

Bao was married and had a 10-year-old daughter.
