A young woman believed to be a British tourist has died after falling from a cliff at a popular coastal selfie spot where another person plunged to their death just months earlier.
Emergency services were called to Diamond Bay Reserve in Vaucluse in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs at 6.30am yesterday after reports someone had fallen off the cliff.
A search was launched by Fire & Rescue NSW and NSW Ambulance paramedics, with the help of the Marine Area Command and Polair.
Just before 10.30am the body of a woman, believed to be in her 20s, was pulled from the water, NSW Police told 9News.
She is yet to be formally identified.
9News understands the woman’s death is being treated as suspicious while the circumstances are under investigation.
Misadventure has not been ruled out as a cause of death.
A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
In August last year a woman local to the affluent area died after she plunged 30 metres down the cliff face.
Diamond Bay Reserve is a popular destination for wedding photos and for tourists and locals alike to snap images for social media.
Police have said in the past that visitors are known to climb over the fencing in the area in a bid for the perfect picture.
