A brave social media influencer has lost her life after falling off a waterfall while trying to take a selfie.
On Saturday, July 10, 32 years old Sofia Cheung, fell 16 feet to her death into the Tsing Dai stream near Yuen Long, Hong Kong.
She had spent the day with three friends at Ha Pak Lai nature park.
Sofia, whose Instagram page lists hiking, kayaking, exploring, outdoor activities, and photography as her passions, had climbed up to the top of the waterfall to take the photos later that day when she lost her footing and fell into the water.
Her friends immediately called emergency services, and paramedics were able to get Sofia to a hospital in Hong Kong, but she was tragically pronounced dead on arrival.
Friends have mourned the influencer whose Instagram bio reads: “Life should be fun not dumb.”
