A stunt double who has worked on films such as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has died after attempting a parkour jump at a hostel in Lisbon, Sky News reports.

Carlos Lopez IV is reported to have been trying to jump from his fourth floor window to a balcony at the Goodnight Hostel in the Portuguese capital.

The martial arts expert, from North Carolina in the US, died from injuries sustained after falling to the ground.

He is thought to have been staying at the hostel with his girlfriend.

A neighbour told Portuguese local media she had "never seen so much blood".

"I woke up with the noise, went to the window and saw the young man lying on the ground, on an interior patio we share with the hostel where it happened," said 77-year-old Natercia Gama.

Lopez, 25, has worked on a number of Hollywood films including this summer's blockbusters Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and 22 Jump Street.

Tributes have been paid to the stunt performer on Facebook.
