A 23-year-old Chinese TikToker influencer died after she fell from an altitude of 50 metres while filming herself.
Mobile phone was still in her hand while the mother of two crashed to the ground.
The tower crane operator, Xiao Qiumei, was live when she fell from the crane.
She had more than 100,000 followers, regularly shared videos of her daily life and occupation operating the huge crane.
The video being shared widely online is reportedly the footage Xiao Qiumei was shooting as it bounced down the crane- although her family have denied that she would have been filming while making her descent.
Eyewitnesses who saw the woman fall to the ground said she had her phone in her hand while the tragedy unfolded, at 5:40pm on Tuesday, when most of her co-workers had left the site.
They added that she was a professional at work, and kept her mobile phone in her bag during working hours.
