It was reported yesterday that a Polish Erasmus student, attempting to take a "selfie" on the emblematic Triana Bridge in Seville, Spain, had fallen and was in a critical condition. Further reports today state that unfortunately the student did not survive the fall.
Emergency services were called, who found Rajchel in a state of cardio-respiratory arrest and paramedics immediately performed CPR at the scene. They then transferred her to the Virgen del Rocio Trauma Hospital in the city. At that stage, her condition was listed as "extremely critical." Despite the efforts of the doctors, they were, regrettably, unable to save her.
Seville mayor, Juan Ignacio Zoido, told the media in a statement, "We did everything we could."
It should be noted that according to authorities, the area in question is not protected by any kind of fencing or other security measure, as the site is heritage listed.
