    A young woman died Thursday after she fell 300 feet from a cliff in San Francisco's Fort Funston, according to fire officials.

    Emergency crews responded to a report of a woman who fell off a cliff at around 4:40 p.m. Fire officials believe the woman was alone.

    Investigators carefully looked for clues about the fall along the cliff's edge, near the viewing platform.

    There are signs along the trails warning walkers to stay away from the edge. A lot of footprints also can be seen in those dangerous areas.

    Rene Samayoa said up top, it may not seem dangerous. But from the beach, it's easy to see the cliffs crumbling.

    "People stand by the edge to catch the sunset," Samayoa said. "My teeth are cringing. I see sand falling; they don’t know the danger they are in."

    No other information was immediately available.
