'Selfie death' as British woman plummets 30 metres from picturesque sea wall

'Selfie death' as British woman plummets 30 metres from picturesque sea wallA British woman plunged to her death, along with her partner, while taking a selfie on a picturesque wall in Portugal, according to local authorities. Perth man Michael Kearns, 33, Louise Benson, 37, his British partner, fell 30 metres off a beach wall and were found by shocked locals early on Tuesday morning. His mother confirmed to local media that she had been notified of his death in the early hours of the morning in Perth. She said the couple had left Australia in January on a holiday and had attended a friend’s wedding in Portugal in recent weeks. A mobile phone was found on the top of the wall overlooking the beach in the seaside town of Ericeira, where the bodies of the couple were found on Tuesday morning. Rui Pereira da Terra, the captain of the maritime authority in Cascais, said the two victims appeared to have lost their balance while taking a photograph overlooking Fishermen’s Beach. Louise Benson fell to her death “Everything seems to indicate that the fall happened when they were probably trying to take a selfie,” he said. "As we found a mobile phone on the wall, our theory is that they were taking a selfie, but they dropped the phone and leaned to grab it and fell," Mr Pereira da Terra told the Portuguese Lusa news agency. Locals have said the wall is dangerous, and have asked for something to be done about it. Pedro Fernandes Tomas wrote on Facebook: "With the fall of a couple of tourists from the cliff of fishermen's beach in ericeira (30 meters high) it is urgent to rethink the security of that area. The locals know about the danger there, low wall and no protection net. "With the growing influx of tourists there are measures that need to be taken, from the case I have already mentioned, but also at the level of regulation and effective monitoring of the numerous economic activities operating in the tourism sector. " The fishing village Ericeira Credit: Martin Zwick/REDA&CO/UIG via Getty Images Susana Esmareldo agreed, writing: "I agree with you Pedro. I've always thought there's a protection net missing, because the wall is low. I hope that action will be taken in the resolution of a protection policy." Ericeira is a popular tourist town around 25 miles northwest of Lisbon. The accident is believed to have occurred between 1.00am and 6.00pm. The bodies were reportedly found by a council beach cleaner, who alerted the authorities at 6.30am. The police inspected the scene and quickly ruled out any suspicions of foul play, Mr Pereira da Terra said. The bodies were taken to the Institute of Legal Medicine in Torres Vedras Photographs of the accident scene showed two bodies covered in white sheets on the sand close together at the foot of the wall near a sign warning of the possibility of loose stones falling onto the beach.   The Foreign Office confirmed the woman involved in the tragic accident was British, and told The Telegraph: "We are in touch with local authorities following the death of a British woman in Portugal and are providing support to her family’." Friend, John Keogh, paid tribute to Louise Benson on Facebook: "It can be such a cruel world we live in. RIP Louise Benson yet again another great soul took away (sic) from us far too early. My condolences to all the family and loved ones." Liz Catchpole wrote: "No words can describe what we have lost. Louise Benson you had a passion for life. I will never forget you rocking up to The Adventure Club to do your DMT.. A quiet, not for long tho, Bristol girl who just loved life. Your smile infectious, your laugh amazing, your friendship invaluable … in shock and speechless, you will be missed and I will miss you so much."

Divers find body of woman dragged into lake by 12ft alligator in Florida

Divers find body of woman dragged into lake by 12ft alligator in FloridaNo one knows if Shizuka Matsuki heard the warnings about alligators circulated to local homeowners after a 6ft specimen was spotted close to a front door. On Friday, she set off as usual with her dogs for a walk beside a suburban Florida lake. Her body was found at the weekend. Officials said she had been bitten and almost certainly killed by an alligator that was later trapped and euthanised. An examination confirmed that the alligator had bitten 47-year-old Matsuki, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials said in a statement. Rob Klepper, a spokesman, said they were able to identify the woman from evidence collected during the examination of the alligator, but he declined to offer further details. We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Shizuka Matsuki. Search teams located the body of Ms. Matsuki June 8 at the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park lake in Davie. We will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident.— MyFWC (@MyFWC) June 9, 2018 Local media were less circumspect. Citing unnamed officials, they said her arm was found inside the creature. It was identified by a tattoo. Her death is a reminder of the danger posed by alligators, particularly as humans seek out waterfront leisure activities. The Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park is hardly the untamed wilderness. It stands in a residential part of Davie, on the edge of Fort Lauderdale, just across a turnpike from the popular Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Emergency servces were alerted on Friday when a witness told police he had seen a woman walking two dogs but later spotted the pets alone and agitated, barking at the water. More than 400 people have been bitten by alligators in Florida since 1948, according to the state's wildlife commission Credit: Getty Images One of the dogs had a fresh injury, a gash on its side, said Viviana Gallinal, a Davie Police detective. “The witness who called us went to the area where he thought that they had been walking, and he immediately spotted an alligator,” she said. Authorities closed the park as they tracked down the alligator and hunted for the missing woman. “We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Shizuka Matsuki,” said the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. A guide to living with alligators | Safety tips Friends said they were devastated by the news. Peter Limia, a neighbour of Matsuki and her husband, said Matsuki regularly walked her dogs at the pond. “It’s such a sad story, I can’t even process it,” he told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “Something like this is so freakish.” A warning had recently been circulated reminding residents of the dangers of local wildlife and to be particularly watchful for alligators. Neil Fischer, another neighbour, said Matsuki may have believed the park offered a degree of safety after another pet had been snatched by an alligator closer to her home.

So sad… “Prayers to the friends, and family. We have to remember to stay alert when walking up to a lake, or any body of water.” Fatal attacks on humans remain rare. According to the wildlife commission, the likelihood of a Florida resident being seriously injured during an unprovoked alligator attack in Florida is about one in 3.2 million. The commission has recorded 401 people bitten by alligators, including 24 fatalities, since 1947. The most recent death occurred in 2016, when a two-year-old boy playing near the water's edge at a Walt Disney World resort was killed.
