Teenage friends drown in 100-foot waterfall after taking selfies with friends - World News

Two teenage friends drowned 100 feet in an isolated waterfall where they went to take selfies.

Monica Mederos, 19, died as paramedics tried to resuscitate her after 19-year-old Bruna Velasquez was pronounced dead at the scene by rescuers.

Together they fell from a huge waterfall and died.

One teenager slipped while walking towards the top of the fountain, begging the other to help her before she lost her balance.

Monique was taken on a stretcher by a helicopter that came close to provide emergency treatment.

The teenager was pronounced dead before reaching the hospital.

“Please God comfort your family heart.”

Friends said the dead women were ‘inseparable’.

The Salto Caveras waterfall in the municipality of Lazes could only be reached by footpath, and Monique was taken to the hospital by helicopter.

Emergency responders who assisted in the rescue said that locals often moved to the area because of the natural beauty, even beyond the reach of visitors to the area where the teenagers lost their lives.
