The Deceased

On the early morning of Tuesday, June 12, 2018, a couple was taking selfies at a lookout at Pescadores beach in Portugal, when they lost their balance and fell 30m to their death.

The couple were identified as Australian Michael Kearns, 33, and his British partner Louise Benson, 37.

They were reportedly taking photos at a wall overlooking the beach when they lost their balance and fell in the coastal town of Ericeira.

Their bodies were found at around 6.30am by a worker cleaning the beach at the popular surfing spot. Reportedly, fishermen who saw the couple at first thought they were sleeping at the beach, before they realized what had happened.
