In a very serious tragic incident, a student has died after falling from cliffs in Ireland while reportedly taking a selfie.

The young man who is said to be in his 20s fell from the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, in the west of the country.

Irish media say he was an Indian national, who has been a student in Dublin

Police are treating it as a “tragic accident” amid reports he slipped while taking the selfie on Friday afternoon.

According to a police spokesman: “The alarm was raised shortly after 3pm when a man was seen falling from the cliff edge.”

His body was later recovered by the coastguard based at Doolin and taken to University Hospital Limerick for a post-mortem examination.

The cliffs at the highest point of 214m (702ft), are among Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions.
