At about 5pm, the influencer wanted to take a photo near the Tsing Dai Stream, but apparently lost her footing and plunged into a five-metre deep pool.

Rescuers arrived and her body was taken via helicopter to the Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Chai Wan, where she was declared dead, according to Today Online.

Netizens have since been flooding the comment sections on her photos where they left their condolences.

Following the influencer’s tragic death, a mountain instructor known as Wu Anyang told HK01 that hikers should always be aware of their surroundings and remain vigilant when exploring terrains. He advised them to check for possible dangers before climbing onto high spots and advised them to not do anything that might put their lives at risk.

Stay safe, guys!
