                The Lepsøy Reef (Lepsøyrevet) has seen an astonishing number of ship-contact up through the years - that is another one for the books!

                  She was very lucky, very very lucky. From the "scene of the fall" there seems to be some kind of drum... if she sat on that one, I would understand her falling overboard. Otherwise, sitting on the railing could cause the same accident. Perhaps there needs to be another sign explaining another "common sense" thing, no sitting on top of this and that.

                  But off course, I wasn't there, hence I have no idea about any details at all.

                    This item offers a little more insight into what happened:

                    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-the-papers-45254120 (paragraphs 5 - 9)

                    The information needs to be treated with some caution as it quotes three British tabloid newspapers, which are not exactly famous for their adherence to the facts.

                    That said, with all three saying much the same thing maybe there's some truth in the story that she jumped rather than fell.
