The latest fatality happened in Luxembourg when a woman and her husband went to snap a dangerous shot on the edge of a cliff…

And people have shared their condolences…

Thirty-three-year-old Zoe Snoeks, whose Instagram is filled with photos from her travels, died tragically after falling from a cliff…

Zoe and her husband, Joeri Janssen, met while they were in school and often spent any free time they had traveling to new places with their dogs Joy and Ivy.

The pair had recently taken a trip to Luxembourg in their campervan, and set out on a hike on the morning of November 2nd.

Sadly, tragedy struck when Zoe went to take a selfie on the cliff edge.

As per the Mirror, Joeri recalled: “We got up very early to take pictures of the Herou (a rocky vantage point with views of the Ourthe River below). There is almost always mist there. It’s great for photos. We arrived before 9 AM.”

He went on to explain that his wife had walked to the edge to take a picture, and had told him to “look out for the dogs.”

“I turned to the dogs and told them to wait. When I turned back to Zoe, she was no longer there. She had just vanished. It must have happened in less than 5 seconds,” he said.

Adding: “I didn’t see or hear anything. No rustling, no screams or shouts. I looked up and saw only dust. I called her, even though I knew it was hopeless. The chasm was several tens of meters deep.”

Joeri explained that he “immediately called the emergency services but had almost no network. They didn’t understand me, even though I speak a little French.”

He then rushed to the nearby Le Belvedere Hotel to ask for help, revealing: “The rescue team could not find Zoe immediately, they said in French. Then they told me that unfortunately, Zoe was dead, also in French, but I immediately understood what they meant.”

“I immediately unlocked her phone and saw that she had taken a photo on the cliff edge. Her very last selfie.”

“Zoe is looking straight ahead. You can also see the mist and the river where they finally found her body.”

Joeri concluded: “The emergency services said Zoe fell at least thirty meters. I saw this place with my own eyes. I even think it was more like fifty meters (164 feet).”

Rest in peace, Zoe. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends.
