A 33-year-old woman has fallen 100ft to her death after she posed for a photo on a Belgium cliff.
Zoe Snoeks was touring the country with her husband Joeri Janssen when she posed on the edge of the cliff near the village of Nadrin.
But she slipped and fell into the Ourthe River below when her husband turned around to check on their dogs.
Scuba divers, firefighters, police, and a medical helicopter from Bra-sur-Lienne rushed to the scene where they found her lifeless body.
“We only left on Sunday in our campervan. Since the pandemic, it was our little thing to drive across Europe in our van and take beautiful photos,” heartbroken Joeri said.
The pair always took their dogs Ivy and Joy during their travels. They were scheduled to go back home to Lumburg on the day Snoeks fell from the cliff.
“We got up very early to take pictures of the Herou. There is almost always mist there. It’s great for photos. We arrived before 9am,” Joeri shared.
He said that his wife posed for photos on the edge of the cliff. “I turned to the dogs and told them to wait. When I turned back to Zoe, she was no longer there. She had just vanished. It must have happened in less than five seconds.
“I didn’t see or hear anything. No rustling, no screams or shouts. I looked up and saw only dust.
“I called her, even though I knew it was hopeless. The chasm was several tens of metres deep. I immediately called the emergency services, but had almost no network. They didn’t understand me, even though I speak a little French.”
Joeri said he went to Le Belvedere Hotel to ask for help. “The rescue team could not find Zoe immediately, they said in French.
“Then they told me that unfortunately Zoe was dead, also in French, but I immediately understood what they meant.”
“Taking photos was her passion. I immediately unlocked her phone and saw that she had taken a photo on the cliff edge. Her very last selfie,” he continued.
“Zoe is looking straight ahead. You can also see the mist and the river where they finally found her body.
“The emergency services said Zoe fell at least 30 meters. I saw this place with my own eyes. I even think it was more like 50 meters.”
