Rosy Loomba, 38, was hiking in Grampians National Park in Victoria on Saturday when she stopped to take a photo at the Boroka Lookout.

An Australian woman fell to her death in front of her family after climbing over a safety barrier while at a national park, according to reports.

Rosy Loomba, 38, was hiking in Grampians National Park in Victoria on Saturday around 3 p.m. with her husband and two sons when she attempted to pose for a photo at the Boroka lookout, a location known for being the “perfect selfie” spot, according to multiple reports. She reportedly scaled a railing at a spot and fell 260 feet to her death.

"Her death is not being treated as suspicious," Victoria Police Leading Senior Constable Natalie Dean said in a statement.

It took emergency personnel six hours to retrieve her body, according to reports. Police Minister Lisa Neville said “no photo is worth a life,” in response to Loomba’s death, according to Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

“Do not take these. It not only puts you at risk but it ­actually risks our life savers and emergency services workers that have to go either to rescue you or your body,” Neville added, according to the news station.

The woman’s sister-in-law, Jassu Minal Loomba, told the Herald Sun the family is still in shock.

"She was a good life partner for my brother and best mum for her kids," she said. 

In January 1999, a 59-year-old tourist fell to her death in the same place while also on vacation with her family.
