A Kentucky widow fell to her death while on a Hawaiian vacation to heal following her husband’s passing.

Jamie "Nicole" Redmond Baker, 37, tumbled 75 feet to her death from an area called Chutes and Ladders on the western coast of Maui Thursday, authorities said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Baker had gone on the vacation to “heal” after her husband, Lonnie Baker, suddenly passed away in June 2017, the Daily Mail reported. The couple had a 3-year-old daughter together.

“This was a healing vacation for her and her small child. RIP Nicole,” her friend Jessica Lynn wrote on Facebook, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. “We will take care of Carson. Hug Lonnie in heaven and know everything will be OK here.”

A family member also posted that Baker’s daughter is with family members.

Baker reportedly isn't the only person who has from fallen off the same cliff, which can be considered dangerous for non-expert climbers.

A friend noted it was not Baker’s first time climbing the cliff and that she and her husband had visited Hawaii often.
