College Student, 20, Falls to Death While Posing for Photo on Arkansas Cliff
Andrea Norton was with a group of students on Saturday when she fell 100 feet to her death.
A 20-year-old college student died after falling off a cliff while hiking in Arkansas.
Andrea Norton, who was a student at Briar Cliff University, was with a group of students from Sioux City, Iowa, on Saturday when she attempted to post for a photo at Hawksbill Crag and fell 100 feet to her death, according to Newton County Sheriff Glenn Wheeler.
The area is known for being a great place to snap a photo but several people have died in the hiking area in the past few years, Wheeler told CBS News.
Norton played volleyball at her university and the team has released a statement about her death.
"We are saddened by the unexpected passing of our beloved teammate Andrea Norton. #22 on the court, #1 in our hearts. Thank you for the prayers, calls, texts and emails. As Dre would say: Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4 #BattleOn," the team wrote on Twitter.
Norton is the second college student this week to fall to her death.
On Sunday, a 22-year-old Fordham student, Sydney Monfries, was trying to take a picture of the New York City skyline when she plummeted 30 feet from the Keating Hall Tower.
She was two weeks away from graduation.
