(ANSA) – SONDRIO, JUN 14 – A 42-year-old woman died after falling into a waterfall near Sondrio on Sunday.

The woman, from Seregno (Monza e Brianza), fell into the Acquafraggia waterfall, a popular local tourist attraction.

Piuro Mayor Omar Iacomella said "too many tourists take too many risks to try and get the perfect picture, ignoring warning signs". (ANSA).
