A student at Oregon State University died on Sunday after falling 100 feet from a scenic lookout on the Oregon coast, authorities said. Michelle Casey, 21, was taking pictures of the popular coastal viewpoint near the city of Manzanita when she lost her balance and slipped off the steep edge, KPTV reported. Her boyfriend told deputies that she landed in a tree, which stopped her from falling into the Pacific Ocean, the sheriff’s office said in a statement on Monday. It added that “Assistance was requested from Cannon Beach for a Rope Rescue and they dispatched a High Angle Rescue Team.”
