The cliffs at Diamond Bay Reserve serve as a perfect selfie background. They became a deadly danger for a British woman.
Madalyn Davis celebrated on Saturday evening in Vaucluse, a suburb of Sydney, and accompanied friends to the rocks around seven-thirty in the morning. According to investigations, they are said to have climbed the barriers to watch the sunset from a ledge. The 21-year-old died there, reports DailyMail.
She didn’t want to go home
Friends mourn the travel-loving model who was planning a new life in Australia. She was a “free spirit” and “beautiful inside and out,” they write on Instagram.
Rebecca Smith tried to contact her daughter on Sunday afternoon. ‘Has anyone seen Maddie? I couldn’t reach her, »she asked for help online. “Please let me know when you were out with her last night.” The tragic news came on Monday: Madalyn will not be coming home.
The model told her friends in December about the “great time” she had when traveling. And that she didn’t mean to go back to England. “I can’t believe that I’ve been traveling around for a month now,” Davis wrote under an Instagram post. “I never looked back at my old life.”
Security measures have just been strengthened
Police in the responsible state of New South Wales received a report on Sunday morning that a woman had fallen off the cliff. With a rescue team in the air and on the water, they were able to recover Davis’ dead body at 10:30 a.m.
Last August, a 27-year-old fell off the rocks. The place is particularly popular with tourists who hope to take the perfect Instagram photo dangerously close to the rock edge.
Mayor Paula Masselos has called a meeting for Monday to decide how to keep visitors from the cliffs even better. After the death of the 27-year-old, some measures have already been implemented. “More patrols, more signs, the fencing has been reinforced”, Masselos lists. “But people don’t listen to the guards and just keep climbing over the barrier.” (Voi)
