South Lake Tahoe, Calif. – Authorities say a woman plunged to her death down a Northern California waterfall after she slipped and lost her footing while taking photos.

The North Tahoe Fire Protection District said in a statement that the woman died Friday at Eagle Falls in Emerald Bay State Park.

The approximately 50-foot-tall (15-meter) falls overlook Lake Tahoe.

The district says called her death “a sad reminder to be cautious when taking selfies and other photos in dangerous areas.”

The woman was not identified.
