Another Tragedy - Mitchell Falls

Woman dies from fall at Mitchell Falls

Im unaware of the circumstances, but a real tragedy.

It seems too many tourists/visitors die every year from falls off high cliffs. So very tempting to get that perfect shot, or take a gander over the edge, especially when you travel so far and spend so much to get to these places.

This is the 2nd this year for the Kimberley. Other was at El Questro.

Absolute tragedy, so young, best wishes to the her family and friends.

It is a real tragedy. When we were at florence falls there were guys jumping from the top. They had had a lot to drink and were fully tanked. One guy had a go at me for being "chicken" and not going up with him to jump. He then climb to the top and as he jumped his foot slipped. He landed flat on his side. It knocked the stuffing out of him. If he wasn't drunk it would've hurt more I rekon. He would wake up very sore in the morning if he woke up at all.
So often these tragedies are avoidable. Some times it's just trying to get a little closer for that perfect photo.
Stay safe and stay back from the edge.
