Woman Falls Over Edge At Kaieteur Falls

This may be a bit of old news, but to me, it's no less shocking nor saddening when we read about it after returning from India.

You can read the story about the incident here. There's another article written about the incident here.

There has been some rumblings about building safety railings or barriers around the Kaieteur Falls. Personally, I hope this doesn't happen as it would certainly take away from the beauty of the place. I can only hope that people continue to stay away from the edge and exercise caution and respect for Nature, but I also know that Nature is inherently dangerous and it's one of those things where it's difficult to manage these risks when there's always that potential that someone may die.
