British woman falls to death in HP
Shimla, May 12 (UNI) A British woman died instantaneously after falling into a gorge in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh on wednesday, police said.
Lucy Hayden, 24, slipped into a 500-foot gorge at Bhagsu Nath in the district and died instantly, while meditating.
Police said Hayden's body was recovered from the gorge after her boyfriend lodged a complaint with the police saying that she was missing since Tuesday.
