Police in Italy are investigating after a 39-year-old woman mysteriously plunged 50 metres to her death from a clifftop.
Tragic Monica Perra often climbed the Devil’s Saddle in Cagliari, Sardinia, but on 27th March, something went wrong.
She plunged 50 metres (164 feet) and died instantly when she landed on rocks, local media reported.
Another hiker spotted her body and called the emergency services.
First responders had to arrive by sea because the spot where Monica fell was too difficult to access by land.
When the teams reached her, they could only confirm her death.
Her body was then transferred to the Marina Piccola in the Sardinian capital.
Nature and outdoor walks were Monica’s passion.
She particularly enjoyed extreme sports like hiking in the mountains and even skydiving.
Police are now trying to work out what caused Monica, who hailed from nearby Selargius, to fall to her death.
Among the lines of investigation are the strong mistral wind blowing her off the clifftop, a misstep that caused her to lose her footing, and suicide.
Local media reported on Monday that an autopsy may be performed on her body as part of the probe.
Monica is survived by her parents and a brother.
