Coe’s death follows the social media personality gaining traction for his ‘daring’ stunts
Back in April, the 25-year-old posted a photo of him dangling his legs over a skyscraper in Manhattan that caused a lot of worry for his mother.
‘What the hell are you doing,’ his mom commented on the post, to which he quickly responded: ”hahaha just on a roof.’

In early 2016, Connor Cummings plummeted to his death while trying to climb the Midtown Four Seasons Hotel where he’d been taking photos. He was just 20 years old.
