A woman has died after she slipped and fell while posing for photos during a date with her fiancé.

The 31-year-old Dorcas Jepkemoi Chumba drowned when she fell into a dam at Chepkiit Waterfalls in Nandi County, Kenya, on Sunday, August 30.

Her fiancé, Benjamin Kazungu had been using her phone to take pictures of her when the tragedy occurred and she was immediately swept away by raging waters before he could save her.

Kazungu said that he had taken his girlfriend out for a picnic at the famous falls to enjoy the breathtaking sight of the waterfall.

He said that they had longed to hang out at the place as they both loved adventure but he did not know that it would be the last time he would ever see his girlfriend.

He recounted how he was taking photos of his fiancé unaware that the photos would be the last memory he would have of his fiancé.

“I encountered the worst scene of my life. Seeing her sinking helplessly into the water and my effort proving futile breaks my heart even more,” said Kazungu.

The family of the deceased has been camping at the falls since the sad incident with the hope of retrieving the body. Efforts by local divers to retrieve Jepkemoi’s body have been unsuccessful.

He appealed to county governments of Uasin Gishu and Nandi together with the national government to help the family of nine children to retrieve the body of their sister.

“Painful as it is, it has happened, and we accept it, what we are requesting is help to retrieve the body for burial,” said Kiptoo.
