Woman who fell while taking selfie on California bridge won’t face charges, deputies say – Los Angeles Times

A woman who plunged 60 feet while taking a selfie on a Northern California bridge is not likely to face charges for crossing a closed walkway, authorities said.

The unidentified woman and group of friends were walking on the catwalk underneath the 730-foot-tall Foresthill Bridge in North Auburn on Tuesday when she tried to pose for a selfie and fell, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. She landed on a trail 60 feet below the bridge.

The woman was airlifted to a hospital and is expected to survive, sheriff’s officials said.

The unexpected accident has now triggered a stern warning from sheriff’s officials: “You will be cited and or arrested if found in any closed location. Worse yet, you can lose your life and none of that is worth a selfie! Enjoy the bridge and canyon from the designated areas.”
