University student dies after falling off 100-foot cliff

A 20-year-old college student died after falling off a cliff while hiking in Arkansas.

Ms Norton was originally from Hot Springs, South Dakota, and was a junior at Briar Cliff, which is in Sioux City, Iowa.

Wheeler said she was trying to re-position herself for a photo when she fell off the Hawksbill Crag - a popular hiking destination within the Ozark-St.

Newton County Sheriff Glenn Wheeler says Andrea Norton was fatally injured on Saturday when she accidentally fell from a rock formation near Jasper, about 101 miles northwest of Little Rock.

Her obituary reads: "Her light, courage and drive is what drew people to her".

"She inspired those who knew her to be the best version of themselves, helped them reach their own goals and had such compassion for everything", the tribute continues.

Even the Trail Blazers Twitter account paid tribute to Jennifer , showing us all just how powerful social media can be. The Thunder were taken out to deep waters and almost drowned by the Trail Blazers in the first quarter of Game 1.

"Andrea was a passionate environmental science major, exemplary student, and dedicated athlete...." First responders recovered Andrea's body by rappelling down the cliff and bringing her up in a litter. The school is working out arrangements with Norton's family for a memorial service in the near future, a BCU spokeswoman said Sunday afternoon.

Norton attended Briar Cliff under scholarship for symphony choir and women's volleyball, her obituary says.

Our deepest condolences and prayers go to the family and friends of BCU student Andrea Norton. "#22 on the court, #1 in our hearts", the team posted on Twitter. She had stepped onto a rock to have her photo taken, and once the photo was snapped, she stepped down, rolled her ankle - which was weak from playing volleyball and basketball - and the momentum made her fall off the cliff, Tamera said one of Andrea's friends at the scene told her.

"She maintained her fierce love for life, her friends and her family".

Researchers noted that the leading cause of selfie-related death was due to drowning.

The other top countries were Russian Federation, the United States, and Pakistan.
