A college student studying environmental science fell about 100 feet to her death while hiking on a class trip to the Ozarks, officials said.

Andrea Norton, 20, was among a group of Briar Cliff University students who traveled to Hawksbill Crag in Arkansas’ Ozark National Forest on Sunday morning as part of a class activity, Newton County Sheriff Glenn Wheeler said.
Witnesses said she repositioned herself for a photo and then fell, KYTV reported.
Wheeler said 61 emergency personnel responded to the scene, and that Norton lost her footing before she fell approximately 100 feet.
