A local teenager has died following a fatal fall at Powerscourt Waterfall in Co Wicklow.

He was pronounced dead at the scene after he plunged from the popular tourist spot at around 2.30pm yesterday afternoon.

The body has been removed to the mortuary at St Columcille’s Hospital in Loughlinstown, where a post-mortem exam will be carried out.

At this stage, gardaí are treating the fall as a tragic accident.

Independent Councillor Stephanie Quigley, a friend of the mother said “Death of a loved one is always difficult but the loss of such a young vibrant boy with his whole precious life ahead is just the worst nightmare for a parent.

“The Fleming family are a devoted family and I am heartbroken to hear this sad news.

“For a family holiday to end in such a way is just so terribly sad. Our deepest condolences to Gillian, Angus and their young boys at this difficult time. They will be in our thoughts and prayers now and days ahead.”
