Woman known as ‘The Bikini Hiker’ for scaling mountains in her swimwear freezes to death in Taiwan national park

A mountaineer known for hiking mountains in her bikini was found frozen to death in a 65ft ravine in Taiwan.

Gigi Wu, 36 – ‘The Bikini Hiker’ – called a friend on her satellite phone on Saturday and Black Hawk helicopters were scrambled to save her high in the Yushan National Park.

But poor weather conditions prevented the aircraft from taking off and Wu was found 28 hours later frozen to death.

I think there’s a lesson here. Maybe several.
