A 31-year-old woman, Olesya Suspitsyna, fell to her death while posing for a picture near the edge of a cliff to celebrate the end of a coronavirus lockdown in Turkey.
Suspitsyna, originally from Kazakhstan, was killed at the popular Duden Park in the city of Antalya, Turkey, on Sunday.
She and a friend reportedly went for a walk at the site, known for its dramatic scenery and waterfalls, following the end of a stay-at-home order in the city on Sunday.
During the walk, Oleysa climbed over a safety fence to pose for a photograph with the park’s waterfalls in the background. While posing for the picture, she slipped on the grass and fell 115 feet (35 metres) down the cliff.
Oleysa’s friend called emergency services and her body was later pulled from the water by local responders, but she could not be revived.
Her relatives told local media that Turkish police had investigated the case and concluded it was an accident.
Suspitsina’s body will be sent from Turkey to Kazakhstan on Saturday, May 2. Her burial will take place in her native city of Kostanay.
Before the incident, Suspitsina had written on Instagram, in a message that is now private: “I will always admire the beauty of the Turkish nature. This is my paradise.”
Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported how a 14-year-old boy jumped to his death because he thought his girlfriend was going to dump him.
