Woman, 42, dies in waterfall

(ANSA) – SONDRIO, JUN 14 – A 42-year-old woman died after
falling into a waterfall near Sondrio on Sunday.
   
Her 36-year-old male companion also fell in while trying to grab
her arm and save her and suffered multiple fractures.
   
The accident happened in the Val Bregaglia, on the border with
Switzerland.
   
The woman, from Seregno (Monza e Brianza), fell into the
Acquafraggia waterfall, a popular local tourist attraction.
   
She is believed to have climbed over safety railings to try to
get a better snap of the falls.
   
She then slipped, lost her footing and fell in, police said.
   
The woman struck rocks in her fall, which lasted for several
metres.
   
Piuro Mayor Omar Iacomella said “too many tourists take too many
risks to try and get the perfect picture, ignoring warning
signs”. (ANSA).
