Idiots die falling off cliff taking vanity photos

Tourists can’t seem to stay away from a dangerous cliffside in Australia – despite warnings from officials and, most recently, the death of a 27-year-old woman who fell while taking selfies.

On Aug. 17, the young woman plummeted off the cliff at Diamond Head Bay in Vaucluse, New South Wales, around 11:30 a.m., according to local reports. Her identity has not yet been released.

However, within hours of her death, tourists were still showing up to take pictures at the dangerous location – which is accessed only by climbing over a fence that has signs posted by emergency responders warning visitors of the unstable cliff edge.

Diamond Bay Reserve in Sydney, which was popularized by an Instagram influencer earlier this year, has been regularly inundated by tourists who jump the wire fence, despite the warnings and rules prohibiting them from venturing past it.

Put up a sign saying if you are so damn stupid that you have to climb over this protective barricade to take a photo of yourself and fall off the cliff, your body will be left to rot in the water.  If your family wants your dead body, they can come and get it but we are not wasting taxpayers dollars for your stupidity.

    I can go with "damn", use it myself from time to time, but I believe you're intelligent enough to express your thoughts on the situation without the use of the 'other'

    Yes, it was stupid & unnecessary, but still lives were lost forever.

    Lives that have/had an impact on friends, family & loved ones...

      You are correct; edited.  I shouldn't get so upset but it seems the world is just becoming worst every day.  People are doing stupid things that cost the taxpayers because they have to take a photo of themselves and post it to their social media account.  Some of it is funny in a way; there was an idiot that wanted to film himself standing beside a train as it came down the tracks.  Luckily for one, the engineer booted him away just before he would have been killed.  Others have been killed.  Then again, it does remove the idiots from the gene pool.

      I really felt good reading these two posts. {#}

      Hugs to you both.

    Maybe I am a heartless person but I get tired of hearing about people doing stupid things and then we have to foot the bill to go dig them out.

      I think some places are starting to charge people to rescue them when they do stupid things.

    Maybe they can put a toe-tag dispenser and a pen by the fence so you can pre-identify your body.
