Student fell from cliff while jumping into air for photo

Student fell to her death after jumping in the air to pose for a photo at the edge of the Seven Sisters cliffs, an inquest heard.

Hyewon Kim, 23, had asked a passerby to take a picture of her during a trip to Cuckmere Haven, East Sussex, on June 22.

As she jumped into the air for the shot, she lost her footing and fell 200ft, the inquest was told.

Eastbourne senior coroner Alan Craze recorded a conclusion of death by misadventure. The court heard Ms Kim, from South Korea, suffered catastrophic injuries in the fall. The day before the incident, there had been a severe rock fall at the same location.

The inquest at Eastbourne Town Hall heard Miss Kim had handed her mobile phone to a group of three other South Korean tourists who she did not know and asked them to take her picture at the cliff edge.
