German Tourist dies while posing at Machu Picchu

A German tourist died Wednesday as he posed in front of Machu Picchu. Oliver Park, 51, went into a restricted zone despite warning signs and instructions from officials. Park supposedly decided to jump in the air as he posed for a picture so he would look as if he was flying but instead Park ended up falling off the cliff. A witness gives a slightly different take to TV station Canal N, as translated by the Washington Post: "He asked a man who was there to take a photo of him," recounts the Peruvian tourist. "The man came over to take the photo and in the moment he was handing him the camera, he lost his balance and fell.”
