College Student Falls From Cliff and Dies After Posing For Photo

An “exemplary” college student died after she fell 100 feet from a cliff while posing for a photo, according to reports. Briar Cliff University junior Andrea Norton, 20, fell Saturday from Hawksbill Crag, a popular hiking spot near Jasper, Arkansas. Newton County Sheriff Glenn Wheeler said the area is known to be dangerous and “one stumble or misstep is all it can take to turn a great day into a tragic one.” In a Facebook post Saturday night, the university called Norton “a passionate environmental science major, exemplary student and dedicated athlete. She lived BCU's values in everything she did from the classroom to the court and everywhere she went.” Norton was from Hot Springs, South Dakota.
