Let me guess...walked right past the "warning cliff may cave in" sign?
 
2014-01-13 05:16:14 PM
Post the pics. Otherwise she died in vain.
 
2014-01-13 05:58:05 PM
My worry is they're ignorant about how the cliffs work.
 
2014-01-13 05:59:05 PM
Dang.  Brave nurses to try to get down there and perform CPR.  But still...can't imagine it would have helped.

MrBallou: Post the pics. Otherwise she died in vain.


I suspect the sister is claiming that she was too shook up to get one last photo. "Suspect," indeed.

I feel kinda bad being all judgy, but ... grownups really should know better than to stand on the edge of a goddam cliff.

What, sis couldn't take an "after" pic?

/I'm 6'6", exit aisle seat, please.

Some of them are overhangs and if you get too close, you don't want it to erode underneath you," she added.

You certainly don't want it to erode underneath you. You could be dead in a thousand years.
 
2014-01-13 06:07:40 PM
Sucks but they're cliffs and that area the geography is pretty clear in explaining itself. "You will probably die if you get too close and fall over".. Why would anyone attempt this?  Why does getting to the edge of a cliff do for the photo anyway?

Unless she held the camera over her head pointing down to show she's at the edge of a cliff.

She was taking care of business.

I hope the college creditors go after her family for the debts.

Accidental death is a risk factored into setting the interest rate.

I am surprised this does not happen all the time at the Grand Canyon.  It's amazing how many people stroll along the edge wear they are not supposed to walk.

Smelly Pirate Hooker: I feel kinda bad being all judgy, but ... grownups really should know better than to stand on the edge of a goddam cliff.


My wife and I were at the Grand Canyon this summer.  Many places have no railings.   I got close to the edge, but not close enough to risk falling off.


\however, saw a German? woman with her two daughters who sat down on the edge and were eating their lunch.  no thanks.

abhorrent1: You certainly don't want it to erode underneath you. You could be dead in a thousand years.


A landslide is still a form of erosion.  It's generally very slow and gradual with spikes of activity and soil loss.

while it sounds terrible, and I feel sorry for everyone involved,  i have a few comment on this article.

FTA:

At this time, police do not believe alcohol was involved.

"All indications are this was just a terrible, tragic accident," San Diego Police Lt. Paul Phillips said.


So, if alcohol were involved, it would not have been a terrible, tragic accident? holy insinuating juxtaposition, batman.

I presume she wrote her own blurb for her listing as an Associate Board Member of the UIC Urban Planning & Policy Student Association (UPPSA)

"... After serving as an AmeriCorps for two years, she decided it would be a fun challenge to return to student life, and maybe a Masters degree could lead to a career or something like it. ..."

From that page it looks like 80% of Masters of Urban Planning students are women.

First day of rock climbing school I watched a college girl fall to her death.
I paid attention.

I don't get this? Why is she looking down? She can look to the left and see what the bottom of a cliff looks like without risking her life.

rwfan: I am surprised this does not happen all the time at the Grand Canyon.  It's amazing how many people stroll along the edge wear they are not supposed to walk.


I'm deathly afraid of falling, so I couldn't bring myself to get any closer than about 40 feet from the south rim. Even watching other people get close to the edge starts to make my palms sweat. But I nearly had a heart attack when I saw a young Japanese couple trying to take a picture of their ~3-year-old with the canyon as a backdrop, and they were waving him back, and back, and back... the trusting little soul was walking backwards at his parents' behest at such a clip I thought he was going to go right over the edge. I was so freaked I actually had to turn away.

We'd only just heard from the tour driver that he'd lost someone a few weeks prior because they got careless near the edge. The kid didn't go over, but for a moment there,  I thought for sure there would be a repeat.

generally, student loan debt is personal and not inheritable.  it is not community property if you are married or become married.  it does not transfer to your spouse, children, descendents, ascendents, heirs, (however, as a creditor, it could take from your estate).

/ I've done some research, and death is the most reliable way to avoid student loan debt.

It seems unlikely that coyoteproductions ever noticed the tiny bit of bandwith that a Farker's embedded pic would produce.  It's not like they linked to his lameass blog.  Or that high traffic is ever much of a concern at blog.coyoteproductions.co.uk.

Which begs the question:  can the Urban Future survive without this future Urban Planning Grad?  What if all urban areas follow her down the cliff?  Then how will you feel?

God, how awful. One step too far and you're done. (On a weird personal note, she was a friend of a friend -- said friend is pretty devastated. What's weirder is that the Irish guy who was murdered in the story further down the page was ALSO a friend of a friend. I'm starting to get a little nervous ...)
