A German tourist has plunged to his death after trying to take a ‘flying selfie’ at the historical Peruvian site of Machu Picchu, in the Andes.
The 51-year-old man named as Oliver Park, is believed to have fallen down the edge of a ravine after ignoring a number of safety signs.
It is reported that after he leapt in the air to take the picture, he lost his footing and tumbled down a steep ravine.
His body was discovered on Thursday and taken to a local police station and was then removed to a morgue in the Peruvian city of Cusco.
The BBC reports that wardens said the man ignored several safety warnings before venturing out of the edge of the cliff.
His body will be returned to his family as soon as police conclude their investigations.
