This is the happy video a young man shot of his girlfriend moments before he plunged to his death as he tried to retrieve his phone from the edge of a 300-foot ravine.
Andrea Mazzetto, 30, reportedly lost his balance and fell 100 metres (330 feet) while trying to retrieve his phone during a hike with his girlfriend, Sara Bragante, on the Altar Knotto trail in the town of Rotzo, in the province of Vicenza, in the Veneto region of northern-eastern Italy, on Saturday, 20th August.
A photo that was taken just moments before the tragedy and captures one of the last memories shared between the couple has also been revealed after it was uploaded to Bragante’s Instagram page shortly before she deleted her account.
The phone that fell into the ravine was initially believed to have belonged to Bragante but was later confirmed to have belonged to her late boyfriend, according to local media.
The incident took place around 2pm when Mazzetto, an entrepreneur and fitness enthusiast who hailed from the province of Rovigo, lost his balance and fell off a cliff on a hiking trail.
Bragante, who was reportedly in a state of shock, proceeded to alert emergency services who dispatched a team of firefighters and alpine rescue officers, along with a medical team to the site.
Mazzetto’s body was then recovered with a helicopter.
The couple had been uploading images of their climb up the hiking trail on their Instagram stories that day while Bragante posted the last image of the two together just moments after the incident.
The post read: “Our last damn photo together.
“You will always be with me, my little bear.”
Bragante then deleted her account.
