Nirupama Prajapati was standing on some boulders when a man, also taking pictures, took a step backwards and tripped – causing her to accidentally fall into the turbulent waters below.

The shocking video clip, filmed in the coastal state of Odisha in east India, ends with the young woman's terrifying screams.

Local fire crews and Nirupama's family searched for 22 hours before finding her dead.

Her lifeless body was found in a stone cavity in deep water, 400 meters away from where the tragedy occurred.

It was reported that Nirupama was at the popular picnic spot with friends before the horrific incident happened earlier this month.

Video footage captured of the incident shows a group of locals stationed on the bank of a river.

The group are taking snaps while Nirupama is doing the same in various different poses.

Then the man, unaware of her presence, steps back and loses his balance, falling into the young woman.

She is shown falling into the river rapids before being swept away by the powerful current.
