Officials asked people to avoid the area during the recovery

Another death linked to a picture-taking session, this time in California.

A woman who died at a USA tourist spot was not taking selfies at the time of her death.

California State Parks is investigating the incident at Eagle Falls off Emerald Bay, and the sheriff's department is carrying out the coroner's investigation, the release said.

Originally the North Tahoe Fire Protection District reported in a Facebook post on Friday that Espinosa was taking photos when she lost her footing.

The woman was not identified, and officials are instructing people to avoid the area while emergency personnel complete their investigation.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a veteran socialist, denounced the president's "entirely unacceptable interference in our democracy".

An initial report from the North Tahoe Fire Protection District showed pictures of the area, and included a line, "this is a sad reminder to be cautious when taking selfies and other photos in risky areas".

Even bodies of water that might not seem threatening are extremely cold from snowmelt.

Michelle Casey, 22, was on a hike with her boyfriend at Neahkahnie Mountain when police say she stepped over a retaining wall and slipped, falling to her death.
