A Spanish YouTuber died after his parachute could not be opened during a jump of a daredevil from a 15 meter chimney.
Ruben Carbonell sneaked into a cement factory in Alicante yesterday morning hoping to film the jump for his social media channel.
The 29-year-old was with a friend who raised the alarm when Carbonell crashed to the ground and immediately died.
An investigation is underway to find out how the couple entered the cement factory and managed to climb the chimney.

According to reports, the deceased and a friend jumped over the fence of the Cemex company in San Vicente del Raspeig to enter.
Once inside, both climbed to the top of a tower of more than 150 feet, from which Ruben jumped first.
However, the parachute did not open for reasons that are still under investigation and the young man died when he hit the ground.
His companion contacted the emergency services and police and doctors went to the scene, but they couldn't do anything to save him.
The dead man specialized in extreme sports because the videos he uploaded showed jumps from a bridge, as well as paragliding and skydiving.
His YouTube channel had 111 subscribers.
Cemex confirmed that the deceased man and his companion had crept into the facilities with surveillance cameras and private security.
However, they said they would leave it to the police to investigate how they came in.
