Olesia Suspitsina, a 31-year-old Kazakhstan woman, fell from more than 110 feet while hiking in Duden Park, Turkey and died. This accident happened last weekend when she was celebrating the end of the coronavirus lockdown in her area after following weeks of shelter-in-place order, by going for hiking with her friend and while posing for a Cliffside photograph, she slipped on the grass and fell. For the sake of the picture, she climbed over a safety barrier or the fence and then on the edge of the cliff, posing, she fell and plummeted around 115 feet to her death. Her companion, terrified by the accident, called the emergency services and they pulled Olesia’s dead body out of water. After the autopsy that took place in Antalya Forensic Medicine Institute’s morgue, the cause of her death was found to be the accident only. Her lifeless body is being transported to Kazakhstan and then would be interred later to Kostanay, her hometown.
She worked in the city as a tour guide for the last five years and before the incident, she wrote on her Instagram that she would always admire the beauty of the Turkish nature and that it was her paradise.
People mourned her untimely death and flocked to social media platforms. A grieving relative of Olesia described her as “a smart and cheerful person who set goals and make them happen”. Many other friends expressed their condolences on social media platforms.
The Duden waterfalls are located in the southern province in Turkey and around 700,000 people used to visit the waterfalls annually.
As of Thursday evening, the country has recorded more than 120,204 confirmed coronavirus cases, which is the seventh-highest figure in the world, and approximately 3,174 deaths according to John Hopkins University. Nonetheless, the Turkish government is hoping to reopen the economy by the end of the next month.
