San Francisco girl dies after falling over fringe of Lake Tahoe waterfall, sheriff says

A San Francisco woman died Tuesday after falling over the edge of Eagle Falls near Lake Tahoe, authorities said.

The body of Ishrat Binta Azim, 25, was ultimately located in a pool of water on July 4 near Vikingsholm Trail by Emerald Bay State Park, roughly a mile away from the waterfall, according to Sgt. Alexander Sorey, a spokesman for El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office.

Sorey said officers first responded to a report of a woman going over the waterfall at 2:44 p.m.

Crews from local fire agencies and the California Highway Patrol assisted in Azim’s search, according to law enforcement.

Sorey said it is unclear how Azim went over the edge of the waterfall, but foul play is not suspected.
