Gigi Wu, better known on social media as the “bikini hiker” died earlier this week after falling into a ravine and not being able to be rescued in time.

Wu was hiking in Yushan national park when she fell 20 metres (65 feet) and was badly injured. She sent out a distress call to her friends using her satellite phone. Asking for the fire services, she alerted her friends that she could not move from the ravine because of her injuries.

However, many rescue attempts were made but all the helicopters were eventually grounded. Due to the weather, no air-bound crew could get to the area. Furthermore, an on-foot team was sent to fine Gigi, otherwise known as Wu Chi-Yan. On the 20th January she was found with no vital signs and declared dead the following day.

The 36-year-old woman would often trek up mountains in Taiwan. She became famous on the internet after changing into bikini tops at the summit of her climbs and taking photos. Media has suggested that Gigi hiked solely in swimwear, but this is not the case. She climbed in the proper gear and once she had reached the top of the mountains, changed for her photos.

Moreover, she was found fully clothed despite speculation on the internet. She succumbed to the near-freezing temperatures, at only 2°C in the middle of the night. This is the tragic death of a fun, adventure-loving woman. We hope she Rests in Peace.
