This is the whole article:
A 23-year-old hiker from Vancouver, fell 100 feet to her death on Friday, July 13, at Panther Creek Falls in Washington's Skamania County.
Skamania County Sheriffs were alerted around 7:10 p.m. that Leslie N. Mar could not be resuscitated and died of injuries at the 130-fall waterfall on Panther Creek in the Wind River Valley.
Witnesses said Mar's hiking partner was with her near the ledge of the falls and the partner saw Mar slip and fall.
Officers said the rugged location and darkness delayed recovering Mar's body until Saturday morning.
