No news yet whether he died before or after he got the shot.

How could he have died before taking the shot

If I'm understanding correctly, the deceased was not authorized to be in or on the smokestack. Perhaps a nomination for the Darwin Awards will be in order.

He died later. Neither the article or video indicate he was a photographer. He might have been shooting with his cell phone for all we know. The story is that this likable guy, a graduate student and part-time stand-up comic, had dinner and drinks with his girlfriend before deciding to climb one of the highest smokestacks in Chicago at night. It was not reported if alcohol, or just trying to impress his girlfriend played any part in a reckless stunt that cost him his life.

This occurred less than a week after a woman was killed photographing an oncoming train. Nicholas Wieme, the comic killed in Chicago, may have been engaged in rooftopping, a new word with some implication of trespassing.

Just great. Now we have to be concerned about more fools falling off of buildings and injuring the innocent bystanders below.

Thanks Dan for the rooftopping link. This simply boils down to another risk-taking fad, minus the training or authority, with a camera or cell phone to document one's craziness. However, it's not as brave as those steel workers who erect those tall buildings and simply shoot a picture of their daily achievements during a lunch break. A better definition of "crazy" might be riding a stingray (fish) underwater without getting stung and living another day to wrestle crocs.
