But it turned out to be a fatal mistake. According to The Mirror, Halil Dag (38) was visiting the historical site at Urfa Castle in Turkey on his birthday. He had climbed over a safety barrier to get on to a higher shelf of rock, and then jumped towards his friend taking a video of him.

But he continued to slip when he landed and fell over the edge of the cliff.

He reportedly fell 50 metres before smacking into the ground near a restaurant.

He was rushed to Balikligol State Hospital, where he reportedly died.
