A Kazakhstan woman reportedly was killed Sunday after plummeting more than 100 feet off a cliff in Turkey while posing for a photo to commemorate the end of the local coronavirus lockdown.
Olesia Suspitsina, 31, had been going for a much-awaited hike in Anatyla’s picturesque Duden Park after weeks of adhering to the citywide shelter-in-place order, according to Sputnik Turkey.
To mark the end of quarantine, the adventurer scaled a safety barrier so her friend could snap her standing on the cliff’s edge with majestic waterfalls in the background, News 1 reports. Her celebratory photo op went south when she slipped on the grass and plunged 115 feet to her death in front of her horrified companion.
The petrified photographer called authorities, who located Suspitsina’s body in the water and identified it, before transporting it to the Antalya Forensic Medicine Institute’s morgue, Sputnik Turkey reports.
Police ruled the victim’s death an accident, according to her bereaved relatives.
