College Student Killed After Falling Off Cliff Posing for a Photo

She was a native of Hot Springs, South Dakota and studied at Briar Cliff University.

Andrea Norton, 20, slipped and fell off Hawksbill Crag while reportedly positioning herself for a picture, according to NBC News on Tuesday.

On the same weekend another tragedy took place at Fordham University, where a student died after falling from a campus bell-and-clock tower during what some students claim to be a "rite of passage".

New County Sheriff Glenn Wheeler said Norton had been hiking with some university friends before accidentally falling from a rock formation near Jasper - about 101 miles northwest of Little Rock. First responders recovered Andrea's body by rappelling down the cliff and bringing her up in a litter.

Sheriff Wheeler said Norton's death was a reminder of how unsafe these popular spots like Hawksbill Crag can be. "She lived BCU's values in everything she did from the classroom to the court and everywhere she went", the university said.

"Hawksbill Crag is a spectacular location that thousands of people visit and enjoy each year", he said.

Black Hills Juniors Volleyball Club, a team Norton played with in the past, posted a tribute on Facebook, saying, "She was a vibrant young lady with an infectious smile that will be missed by many". As a program, and as her coach- condolences to her family and friends during this time'.

Andrea interned as a naturalist at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center in Sioux City, researched breast cancer at Sanford Health and planned to study aquatic ecology at Central Michigan University this summer, Tamera said. Tattooed around her ankles were Bible verses Job 12:8, which speaks about learning from the earth and fish, and 1 John 4:4.

Norton was on scholarship at BCU for symphony choir and women's volleyball, according to The Journal.
