A lamentable incidence transpired in New York’s Minnewaska State Park, where Abdul Rauf Bin Mohd Said, the spouse of Singaporean tourist Nur Aisyah Binte MD Akbar, and they were both hiking when she tragically fell from a cliff. The occurrence took place on December 22, during the course of the couple’s Beacon Hill Trail excursion, when they came to a halt at the precipice to take photographs.
Approximately seventy feet in altitude, Nur Aisyah lost her equilibrium at the age of 39. Without delay, her spouse dialed 911 for assistance. The aviation division of the New York State Police (NYSP) was mobilized to the scene of the emergency and subsequently transported Nur Aisyah to a more secure vicinity. Despite the medical staff’s diligent efforts to revive her for an estimated duration of three hours, Ellenville Regional Hospital ultimately rendered her death certificate.
Abdul Rauf Bin Mohd Said expressed his profoundest anguish through social media, writing, “The irreparably shattered fragments of my heart are separated.” The couple’s tragic incident has garnered significant attention regarding the potential dangers that may arise when hiking in close proximity to precipice margins, specifically when pausing to capture photographs.
Presently, the New York State Police are carrying out an investigation into the occurrence. This unfortunate occurrence serves as a solemn reminder of the utmost importance of exercising prudence and safety while admiring natural scenic regions. The loss of Nur Aisyah has caused significant sorrow for her family and the wider community, including her peers and Singaporean counterparts.
