Woman dies trying to take photo at edge of 262-foot cliff

A woman in Australia fell off a cliff to her death on Saturday after trying to take a photo at the precarious location.
Rosy Loomba, 38, was with her husband and child when the accident occurred at Grampians National Park, in Australia’s Victoria state, according to CNN affiliate Nine News.
They were at Boroka Lookout, an overhang by the side of the cliff that has a panoramic view of the mountains and town below.
Police said Loomba climbed past safety barriers and warning signs, to pose on a rock for a photo when she tripped over the edge, falling more than 80 meters (about 262 feet) down the cliff face, according to Nine News.
Witnesses heard Loomba screaming, but were unable to help. Police and the state emergency service worked for six hours to scale the cliff and retrieve her body.
The viewing platform was closed throughout the afternoon during the retrieval process, but was reopened to the public by 10 p.m.
