Mum Plunges To Death After Sneaking To Top Of Waterfall For Selfie

A young mum has died after sneaking to the top of a waterfall that was closed off to the public to take a selfie.

Amanda Franco dos Santos, 26, the mum of a five-year-old, tragically passed away after she plunged from the top of the Corupa Waterfall Route located in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil, and was washed downstream.

The route – which consists of 14 waterfalls – is reportedly one of the last remaining areas of the Atlantic forest in Brazil.

Despite the location being closed to visitors on Sunday, October 30, Franco dos Santos, from the Brazilian city of Mafra, went to visit the area of beauty anyway.

The trio were not willing to give up on a photoshoot for their Instagram, so they decided they would use an alternative route to reach the area.

Shortly afterwards however, the two friends called the police to report that Franco dos Santos had disappeared at around 4.50pm.

Crews from the local Volunteer Fire Department immediately rushed to the scene following the call.

They went on to initiate a search throughout the whole waterfall route.

However, they had no luck in finding Franco dos Santos during the first day of the search.

Sadly, Franco dos Santos’ body was only found after it had washed through several of the cascades.
