NELSON COUNTY -- Faith Helbig, an 18-year-old student from Liberty University, died after she fell at Crabtree Falls. It happened Monday night just before 6 p.m.
A group of six Liberty students were at the top of the falls taking pictures when one of them fell. Helbig fell about 200 feet. An investigator said she crossed safety barriers designed to keep hikers safe.
Her death was the third at the falls since 2010 and the 28th ever.
