TENNESSEE: A 27-year-old woman from Andhra Pradesh passed away after accidentally slipping and falling down at a waterfall in the US.
Polavarapu Kamala had gone to Bald River waterfalls in Tennessee with her fiance and was taking a selfie with him when both slipped.
The man was rescued by the bystanders. Kamala was later found lying unconscious under a log.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was carried out until first responders arrived at the scene.
Kamala was shifted to Sweetwater Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Efforts are now being made to bring back the body to India. Her parents were understandably shocked at the tragic developments.
“The Telugu Association has said they will help bring the body home,” Kamala’s father said.
Kamala was reported to hail from Krishna district and is said to have gone to the US a few years ago to pursue her higher education, following which she got a job and began working in Ohio.
