PICTURED: Mother-of-two, 27, who fell to her death while trying to take a selfie on a 27th floor balcony
Photographs have emerged of the Portuguese woman who was filmed falling off a balcony of a high-rise building in Panama while trying to take a selfie on Friday. Sandra Manuela Da Costa Macedo, 27, had just recently arrived to Panama where she had a job as a teacher, according to the Portuguese newspaper O Minho. Macedo was a native of the northern Portuguese town of Aves. She is survived by two children. Susana Cunha Barros, a Portuguese woman, posted a tribute on Facebook to Macedo.Source
‘So long,’ Barros wrote in the caption above a photo of the teacher. ‘Sandra... thank you for your contribution in the education of my daughter Helena... Will always be remembered with great affection.’ Macedo was filmed from afar as she tragically fell to her death from the 27th floor of a high-rise block while losing her balance taking a selfie. She went over a balcony railing she was leaning against as she took the snap. Sickening video footage showed her still holding the selfie stick as she plunged to the ground below. An onlooker filming the tragedy shouted: 'She's mad, there she goes, look at her, look at her, she's fallen.' Source
