Two 19-year-old friends Emma Place and Emily Lang have died falling off the Pacific Crest Trial cliff while trying to climb Mount Hood In Oregon. The young girls fell off the perilous cliff which was 150 feet high. Their dead bodies were discovered by other hikers on the way to the Pacific Crest cliff on Saturday and they immediately caleed 911 to report the incidence.
According to the hikers their dead bodies were lying on rocks at the base of a waterfall six miles away from the Timberline Lodge. Officials told that the women must have lost their balance on the slippery fall as they had set up their camp on the top of the fall.
