HONG KONG: A mountain climber in Shanghai fell to his death when he tried to abseil into his apartment after arriving home without his keys, it was reported today.

The experienced climber tied a rope to his waist and tried to lower himself from the 11th floor of the block of flats where he lived onto the balcony of his 10th floor flat.

However, the rope snapped as he began his descent and he plummeted to his death, the Hong Kong edition of the China Daily reported.

Must... remember... extra keys under the potted plant by the front door.
