This is the pretty young dance instructor who died seconds after filming this video of her routine next to the river where she drowned while washing her feet.
The 21-year-old surnamed Peng is the co-founder of a dance studio in the county of Xuanhan in Dazhou City in south-western China’s Sichuan Province.
Local reports revealed Peng had chosen Manshui Bridge on the Zhouhe River for what was to be her 60th video on live-streaming platform ‘Douyin’, which is available for download in English-speaking markets as ‘Tik Tok’.

Peng’s final video shows her performing the routine on the bridge barefoot, with reports saying she later fell into the river while attempting to wash her feet.
It happened on 2nd May during China’s four-day Labour Day break.
It is still unclear who was with the dance instructor at the time of the accident, but she apparently could not swim and was later found drowned at the scene.
Peng, who is a mother-of-one, has seen her Tik Tok page flooded with comments from fans and other members of the public since the tragic accident.
A spokesperson for Peng’s dance studio said the young woman’s remains had already been release back to her family, who were in the process of arranging her funeral.
