Woman falls to death while posing for cliffside photo to celebrate end of lockdown
A Kazakhstan woman was reportedly killed Sunday after plummeting more than 100 feet off a cliff in Turkey while posing for a photo to commemorate end of the local coronavirus lockdown.
Olesia Suspitsina, 31, had been going for 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 backdrop, 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 the Kazakhstan national’s body in the water and identified it, before transporting it to the Antalya Forensic Medicine Institute’s morgue, Sputnik Turkey reports. Police later ruled the victim’s death an accident, according to her bereaved relatives.
Suspitsina, who had worked as tour guide for five years in the region, previously wrote in a now-private Instagram post: “I will always admire the beauty of the Turkish nature. This is my paradise.”
The deceased was described by a grieving relative as a ” a smart and cheerful person” who “set goals and made them happen,” the Daily Mail reports.
