SAN DIEGO — Authorities released the name Monday of a 25-year-old Northern California woman who fell to her death at Sunset Cliffs during a family visit.

Anna Bachman of Santa Rosa was with her sister, posing for a photograph, when she slipped off a roughly 50-foot sea bluff near Ladera Street shortly before 5:30 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police.

Bachman, a graduate student at the University of Illinois at Chicago, died at the scene of the accident, despite life-saving efforts by witnesses and paramedics. It was not clear if she was visiting from Chicago or Santa Rosa.

“Our thoughts and prayers are out with the family,” SDPD Lt. Paul Phillips said. “Trying to get over something like this could take a lifetime.”
