An Australian Has Died After Falling From A Cliff In Portugal

An Australian is dead after falling from a cliff overlooking a popular Portuguese tourist beach, reportedly while attempting to take a "selfie".

A couple, a woman in her 30s and man in his 40s, plunged 30 metres to their deaths between 1am and 6am on Tuesday morning (local time) after falling from a beach wall near the seaside town of Ericeira, according to local media.

"As we found a cell phone on the wall, it seems that (the victims) might be getting a 'selfie', when they let the phone fall, leaned over to grab it and fell," local rescue service captain Pereira da Terra told Portuguese news agency Lusa.
