Brit model, 21, fell to her death after climbing fence at selfie spot abroad

Madalyn Davis, 21, fell to her death after she climbed over a fence during a trip to Australia, an inquest has heard.

The make-up artist, who studied at Retford Oaks Academy in Nottingham, died on the morning of January 11, after falling to her death at a popular 'selfie spot' at Bondi Beach.

Her inquest was held in Australia as well as the UK, which found she suffered from multiple injuries due to the fall, NottinghamshireLive reports.

A mixture of drugs and alcohol were found to have had a "significant contribution" with MDMA, cocaine, Ketamine and high amounts of alcohol in her system.

The inquest was told she had been consuming drugs and alcohol at a party before a group of eight decided to venture to the beauty spot to watch the sunrise.

Witness statements read out during the hearing on Monday, said the group climbed over a fence to access the site and then continued to walk down the side of the cliff.

Assistant coroner Gordon Clow said the substances she had taken would have "impaired her decision making, balance and coordination."

Ms Davis walked on with three males before one shouted: "She has gone. She has fallen. She has gone."

Emergency services rushed to the scene, as well as water rescue, divers and local fishing boats, to search for Ms Davis.

They found "a white flip flop on the cliff edge and many cans of beer" describing the fall as "extreme."

Her body was then discovered.

Her family described the model as "very healthy, liked eating out with friends" and was "very outgoing."

They said she was not "a massive drinker" but a statement by one of her friends read out to the court said she liked "to let loose a bit when travelling" and had taken drugs before.

The coroner recorded a verdict of misadventure.

He added the cause of death was multiple injuries with significant contributions being mixed drug and alcohol use.

He said: "This is a great trauma and tragedy of a young person's life cut short by alcohol and illicit drugs. This was a death that took place at a local beauty spot that people enjoy.

"It is not the first death at that area and sadly it will not be the last. It is a great tragedy of a young person trying to live life to the full."

Following her death, tributes poured in for the young girl, but her family were left devastated after trolls mocked the 21-year-old.

They called the make-up artist 'self-obsessed'.

Hitting back at trolls Rebecca Smith said at the time: "My daughter was not self-obsessed she was a wonderful beautiful person that made a mistake."
