A 16-year-old girl plunged to her death during a zip-line exercise at her college as her instructor father watched on.
Aditi Sanghi, 16, was sitting on the edge of the six-storey building helping other pupils fasten their harnesses when she lost her balance and tumbled over the edge.
She had just finished her round and walked back to the terrace during the activity conducted by her father, Sunil Sanghi, at the International College for Girls (ICG) in Jaipur, India.
Aditi was watching another student coming down the zip line when she appeared to lose her footing and fall.
Dr Rakhi Gupta, the registrar of the college, refused to blame anyone saying Aditi’s father himself had witnessed the accident.
She said it was an ‘accident’ and pointed out that Aditi had not been on the zip line at the time.
