Amaga firefighters were present and pronounced her dead at the scene.

Gustavo Guzmán, the mayor of Fredonia Municipality, said: El Tiempo: ‘She got confused. The signal was for the friend to jump because he was already attached to the security equipment.

“They had only put the armor on her, so she got confused and rushed.”

The boyfriend is still being treated as a result of the injuries he sustained when he ran downstairs to find her and is said to be in a state of shock.

According to local media, hospital doctors said Morales suffered a heart attack before reaching the ground.

Her brother Andres said that Yecenia was a happy woman who loved reading and dancing and had an entrepreneurial spirit.

He said, “My sister is a girl of the best values, happy, spontaneous, with virtues that made her love her friends and help those in need.”

Local authorities have also opened an investigation after allegations that two companies providing services and supplying equipment to the site were not authorized to do so.
