Woman falls to her death watching sunset on her birthday from ‘dangerous’ cliffs

A Brazilian woman plunged 25 metres to her death while celebrating her birthday by watching the sunset at Kangaroo Point cliffs, Australia.

Fernanda Morella was enjoying her 33rd birthday when she accidentally fell at the heritage-listed beauty spot in Brisbane.

Emergency services were called to River Terrace at 5 pm Tuesday after Ms Morella was found at the base of the rockface.

However, she was unable to be revived and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Queensland Police confirmed her family in Brazil have been informed of her death as tributes have been pouring in from devastated loved ones who have remembered Ms Morella as a 'loving person'.

One friend wrote: "I love you more than one day I could say. At the moment, you can only say that."

Another friend said she was shocked to learn about the death and had received a message from Ms Morella on her birthday.

"I can't believe it! 'To what a sensitive and loving person!" another added.

"My friend fell yesterday when she saw the sunset and rested!"

"She always called me, always loved me, always been present, wanted to be here for her birthday, and sleep here at home, but Sydney closed and she wouldn't be able to come!

"We didn't talk much this week, but we always talk, every week we video call. Yesterday was her birthday, and she sent me ''I love you''. RIP Fernanda."

Kangaroo Point cliffs are a popular abseiling and rock climbing spot.

However, locals have expressed their concerns about people not behaving safely at the top of the cliff.

One man wrote on Facebook: "[There is] a high number of people who muck around at the edge of the KP cliff not realising the danger they are in.

"A couple of weeks ago I was at the top of the KP cliff… and next to me was a young couple drinking wine looking over the cityscape while dangling their feet over the edge."

Another added: "What do you expect when people actually picnic regularly on the dangerous side or, as I have seen, young children as young as five collecting stones from the cliffside of the barrier."

Queensland police are investigating the circumstances surrounding her death but reports say it is not being treated as suicide.
