SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Authorities have identified a woman who plunged to her death while snapping photos from a Northern California waterfall overlooking Lake Tahoe.
The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office confirmed in a statement that 35-year-old Dina Espinosa was in a pool at Eagle Falls on Friday when she slipped while reaching for a branch.
Witnesses say she was too close to the edge and there was no guardrail blocking access to the area.
Authorities say she was swept away in the fast-moving waters. The water cascades about 150 feet.
Rescuers pronounced her dead upon locating her body.
Deputies say Espinosa was from the San Francisco Bay Area.
According to a GoFundMe page set up for funeral costs, Espinosa was a mother of three children.
