A young woman died Friday after falling while taking photos at a waterfall inside a California state park at Lake Tahoe, rescue officials said.
Crews responded to the scene at Emerald Bay State Park “to recover the body of a young woman who was taking photos at the falls, lost her footing and went over,” the North Tahoe Fire Protection District posted on its Facebook page.
The fatality happened at Eagle Falls.
In the post, the district said, “This is a sad reminder to be cautious when taking selfies and other photos in dangerous areas. Don’t under estimate the power of water falls, rivers, and cold water temperatures.”
The woman has not been identified.
