A MAN horribly dove to his death as he tried to retrieve his Apple Airpods which he had dropped outside his window.
The 26-year-old victim was found lying on the street in Sai Wan, Hong Kong, with catastrophic head injuries at 1 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Passers-by found the bloodied man collapsed in the road before calling emergency services.
Paramedics arrived at the scene a short time later and transported the unidentified victim to Queen Mary Hospital for treatment.
But he was tragically pronounced dead soon after after succumbing to his injuries.
Reports say the married construction worker dropped his AirPods on an awning outside his apartment window.
It is believed the father was playing video games in the pad he shared with his brother before desperately trying to get his wireless headphones.
It is believed that he accidentally fell out of the fifth-story window in the early hours of the morning as he tried to reach the metal canopy.
Passers-by would have thought at first that the man was trying to kill himself by jumping out of the window.
In a cruel twist of fate, the man reportedly reassured the worried crowd that he was “not jumping” before he fell.
Chant Tao every day reported that police later found the AirPods, the charger case and a smartphone with a loaded online game scattered on the street.
The man is said to have a wife and child who both live in China.
His relatives who shared the apartment with him reportedly only learned of his death after opening the door to the cops.
A large police presence remained in the building following the horrific incident.
Local media said a preliminary investigation revealed the man accidentally tripped and fell from the window.
An official autopsy has not yet taken place.
The case has currently been classified as a death after a fall from a height.
