  • Briar Cliff University junior Andrea Norton was fatally injured on Saturday when she accidentally fell from a rock formation near Jasper Arkansas

Norton was visiting the rock formation while on a hiking trip with her college friends, according to her obituary.

Norton, who was from Hot Springs, South Dakota, is the second person to fall from the crag - a popular hiking destination and picturesque spot - this year, officials said.

"Norton was apparently moving from one are of the [Hawksbill] Crag to another when she lost her footing and fell approximately one hundred feet", authorities said in a statement.

According to university newspaper the Observer, emergency crews responded to the scene just before 3:30 a.m., and Monfries had suffered serious injuries to her head and pelvis.

Sheriff Wheeler said Norton's death was a reminder of how unsafe these popular spots like Hawksbill Crag can be.

Wheeler said Norton's is the latest death in a string of several in recent years at the location, which is a popular with photographers. During the school year she worked in the library, and over the summers she participated in internships. She was preparing to work as an environmental engineer or in any career that "would make a difference to the environment".

"She lived BCU's values in everything she did from the classroom to the court and everywhere she went". As a program, and as her coach- condolences to her family and friends during this time'.

Her daughter was very religious and found no conflict between Biblical creation and science, Tamera said. "1 John 4:4 #BattleOn", the team wrote on Twitter.

Andrea's middle name is Eileen, and the two names together means "courageous light", Tamera said.

"Her smile could light up a room and she brought joy to all around her".

Andrea also had a younger brother called Matt.

Briar Cliff University said Norton was a dedicated student and a member of the volleyball team.
