A woman from New York City died suddenly after falling into a river while posing for pictures next to a waterfall in Puerto Rico. Kenah Huggins’ body was found in El Yunque National Forest after she slipped while someone was taking her picture.
“She ended up in the pond, slipped, lost balance and fell into the water,” said the search and rescue manager Victor Lasanta.
The tragedy shocked those who were watching, because they saw the woman rushed away to her death with almost nothing they could do about it. Several witnesses were treated for shock after the incident took place.
The 35-year old woman was in the Carribean with family and friends to celebrate her wedding. Authorities found her body the next day after she’d drown from the fall.
“On behalf of the family an friends I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their warm words and condolences we truly appreciate every kind word and gesture,” said Nicole Taylor, a friend of Huggins.
Here is one of Kenah’s last Facebook page updates:
“I’m a thinker, I absolutely live in my head ( a lot ) but I know I can’t change the future & I am strong believer that everything has a purpose for how, why, where & when…… So just go with it ;-)”
