A teenage girl in Romania has died in a bear attack after the animal dragged her and then dropped her 330 feet off a cliff while she was hiking with her boyfriend.

The unnamed 19-year-old woman was hiking in the Bucegi Mountains in central Romania, near the city of Brasov, on Tuesday when she was attacked and dragged by the animal.

According to the victim’s boyfriend, the bear first grabbed the woman’s leg and pulled her out of the way before throwing her 330 feet off a cliff, where her body was later found and recovered by emergency services.

Rescuers had a difficult task in recovering the body, as the animal remained nearby, so they had to euthanize the ferocious bear, which remained nearby and was particularly aggressive, according to authorities.

The victim’s boyfriend, whose identity is also unknown, was unharmed.

Speaking to CNN Antenna 3Sabin Corniou, president of Salvamont Romania, the country’s mountain rescue service, explained: “According to the information we have, the bear attacked the young woman on the path, dragged her into the vegetation next to the path and somewhere in this vegetation dropped her into a chasm and there she fell. The bear came down after her.”

“My colleagues went down into the abyss, where unfortunately the victim’s injuries were incompatible with life,” he added.

Speaking to another media outlet, Europe FMCornoiu said: “This is a situation we have not seen before. (…) We have had situations where animals came, threatened, demanded food and made themselves felt in order to receive something. But here, it seems that we are already talking about a direct attack, and this is not typical for bears. We need to see exactly what influenced it. Maybe the heat, maybe some disease the animal suffered from. We need to see exactly what changed its behaviour so radically that we ended up with this type of event.”
