Just one day before her birthday, a fence on top of a cliff came way, causing a woman to fall 30 feet to her death in front of her sister.

Romona Gowens, 54, a visitor from Georgia who was in Maine, took a cliff walk.

She strayed off the main path and rested against an old fence during the walk on Prout’s Neck near Scarborough, according to authorities.

According to authorities, the fence then collapsed, dropping the woman 30 feet to the rocks below.

After the terrible event, her sister and a nearby fisherman dialled 911 to contact the authorities.

Around 10.30 am on Monday, emergency personnel discovered her in a severe condition; nonetheless, it took them some time to get to Gowens, according to the Portland Press Herald.

Just one day before her 55th birthday, she passed away at Maine Medical Center in Portland.

“It’s kind of gut sinking,” Anna Strout of Cape Elizabeth told WGME.

“I’m shocked actually to hear that somebody fell to their death.”

Patrick Conley of Scarborough walks on the path almost every day and “never have I ever felt fearful or like it’s dangerous at all.”

The Cliff Walk, however, “is NOT a manicured or flat path… it may be rather perilous walking,” according to the trails website.

In DeKalb County, Alabama’s High Falls Park, a 70-year-old man died while hiking just three days ago, according to officials. He tripped and plummeted to his death.

“It took two hours to bring him out, to remove his body from the bottom of the falls,” DeKalb County Coroner Tom Wilson Wilson told The U.S. Sun.

A woman died earlier this month after trekking up Capitol Peak in Pitkin County, Colorado, and falling 900 feet to her death.

A witness claimed that while the victim was attempting to hold onto a boulder, the rock gave way, causing her to go down the mountain.

A 22-year-old lady named Maya Humeau fell 100 feet ten days after this occurrence at the Black Wall climbing area north of Mount Evans in Colorado.
