All because he was trying to be helpful.
Jing Lun was in Yunnan, as a volunteer for Channel U's Stars For A Cause.
His mission: to help in the construction of a temporary bridge to replace the previous rock bridge that collapsed over a year ago.
Although the villagers managed to build a simple bridge, children still needed to do a one-kilometre-long detour to get to school. The simple bridge was also at risk of collapsing during the rainy season.
Being an urban-dweller, Jing Lun was naturally unfamiliar when navigating the area. Over an overseas phone interview, Jing Lun tells xinmsn about his brush with death.
"We were going over to a neighbouring village to get some scenery shots but the road along the way was really treacherous with streams below and above us. I was helping the crew with a tripod when I slipped and almost fell down the hill!"
