Social Media Influencer Sofia Cheung Dies After Falling off a Waterfall
A daredevil social media influencer has died after falling off a waterfall while trying to take a selfie.
Sofia Cheung, 32, fell 16 feet to her death into the Tsing Dai stream near Yuen Long, Hong Kong, on Saturday, July 10.
She had spent the day with three friends at Ha Pak Lai nature park.
Sofia Cheung, whose Instagram page lists hiking, kayaking, exploring, outdoor activities, and photography as her passions, had climbed up to the top of the waterfall to take the photos later that day when she lost her footing and fell into the water.
Her friends immediately called emergency services, and paramedics could get Sofia to a hospital in Hong Kong, but she was tragically pronounced dead on arrival.
Friends have mourned the influencer whose Instagram bio reads: “Life should be fun not dumb.”
