A rising star who worked on the Hunger Games films has died after a tragic accident.

25 year-old Carlos Lopez fell to his death in Portugal after plunging from a fourth floor window in a Lisbon hostel.

Mr Lopez, a talented stuntman, had been trying to jump from his window onto a neighbouring balcony opposite his room.

Mr Lopez was staying at the hostel with his girlfriend, who witnessed his death plunge. The stuntman had been practising parkour, a stunt where the jumper tries to get from one point to another in the most efficient way. Tragically, it is thought Mr Lopez misjudged the jump and fell to the ground below.

A neighbour who was woken by the commotion said she had “never seen as much blood.”

The talented stuntman had over 23 film credits to his name, including work on the Hunger Games series which stars Jennifer Lawrence.
