An Israeli woman trag­i­cal­ly lost her life while on vaca­tion in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Alma Bohadana, 22, died on Mon­day after jump­ing over a wall and suf­fer­ing a 49-foot fall into a forest­ed area.

Bohadana and anoth­er for­eign tourist, iden­ti­fied as Dan Hen, were walk­ing on a street in the Rio neigh­bor­hood of San­ta Tere­sa when they were fright­ened by the sound of a motor­cy­cle. Think­ing they were about to be robbed, the pair began run­ning, and Bohadana leapt over a wall, plung­ing into the for­est below.

Para­medics were unable to revive Bohadana, who was pro­nounced dead at the scene. Hen, who had been with Bohadana, was inter­viewed by police mul­ti­ple times, pro­vid­ing vary­ing accounts of what led to the trag­ic incident.

The Rio de Janeiro Civ­il Police are inves­ti­gat­ing the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing Bohadana’s death, includ­ing whether a motor­cy­cle was present and if any weapons were involved. Sur­veil­lance footage from the area is being reviewed as part of the investigation.

Bohadana had been vaca­tion­ing alone in Brazil for over three months, spend­ing the first 90 days in the north­east­ern city of Sal­vador before trav­el­ing to Rio de Janeiro 10 days ago. Hos­tel work­ers in Sal­vador remem­bered Bohadana fond­ly, describ­ing her as a “lov­ing per­son” who “just smiled, sang and talked a lot.”
