A woman fell more than 200 feet to her death on Saturday after posing for a photo at a cliff in Australia, according to reports.
The woman was identified as Rosy Loomba, 38, who had been visiting Grampian National Park’s Boroka Lookout in Victoria with one of her children and her husband, Australia’s 9News reported.
Police said the mother climbed past safety barriers to pose on a rock for a photo when she tripped over the edge and plummeted about 262 feet down the cliff face.
OREGON MAN PLUNGES TO HIS DEATH POSING FOR PICTURE NEAR CLIFF: REPORT
A tour guide in the area, Graham Wood, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation he regularly sees tourists climb over safety barriers at the park. He said he watched someone climb out on the ledge for a photo less than a half-hour before the incident, and knew that one day someone would fall off.
“We left and I believe within a half an hour that did happen … [I was] shocked. It was just a coincidence,” Wood said. “I don’t know how you can stop it happening but maybe this incident will help … It’s a hard way to get people to adhere to what should be common sense.”
Police and the state emergency service scaled the cliff face for six hours to retrieve her body. The viewing platform closed after the incident but was reopened to the public around 10 p.m, according to 9News.
At times, tourists and hikers have plunged to their death while posing for a perfect photo.
