Bay Area Woman Dies in Fall From Cliffs


SAN DIEGO — San Diego authorities say a tourist from Santa Rosa fell to her death while posing for a photo on a beachside cliff.

Anna Bachman of Santa Rosa was photographing a sunset when the ground beneath her gave way and she fell 40 to 50 feet in the area of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and Ladera Street about 5:20 p.m., authorities said.

A Fire-Rescue dispatcher tells the Union-Tribune newspaper that a call for medical aid was made Sunday evening in the Sunset Cliffs neighborhood, but it was cancelled when the woman’s body was found.

Bachman was visiting her sister in San Diego. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of California Berkeley, according to her social media profile.

The incident is under investigation.
