A British woman died on Sunday, January 12 after falling from the 30-meter Diamond Bay Reserve cliff in Sydney, in the eastern part of the city, while taking a selfie.
Local media identified the woman as Madalyn Davis, 21, a young English model and makeup artist. Shortly after the authorities officially identified the deceased.
Tourists often jump over the fence, since the cliff is known for obtaining picturesque photos despite warning signs in different languages.
Davis is an 'influencer' from Lincoln (United Kingdom) who had been living in the United Kingdom for a year. He had gone to the cliff with his friends to take pictures of the sunrise, about six in the morning, after partying with them.
To access there they jumped a fence. After Davis fell, his friends called emergency services, who searched the body in sea and land for four hours. A Marine Rescue Middle Harbor team went to the scene of the accident.
His mother, without knowing the news, asked for help in social networks to find her.
