When medics arrived, Bruna Vellasquez, 18, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her friend, Monique Medeiros, was still alive at the time, but tragically died shortly afterwards.

Moments before their deaths, the pair shared a selfie to Instagram on top of the cliff that they would later fall from.

Friends and family took to social media to pay tribute to the two friends in the days following their tragic deaths.

One person wrote:

Please God comfort the hearts of your family.

Another commented:

She [Monique] began as a cashier before beginning to work with me in its management.

I fell ill and she helped me a lot and basically had to run the business alone.
