Austrian climber died after fall from a rock near Tyulenovo

An Austrian rock climber has perished after falling off a 4-meter rock nearby the Bulgarian village of Tyulenovo on the Black Sea.

Tyulenovo, nearby the town of Shabla on the northern Bulgarian Black Sea, boasts some of the most spectacular high-rock coastline.

The 27-year-old Austrian citizen apparently died from drowning after falling into the sea from the rock.

It is still not clear what caused the fall, as the young man was an experienced climber, was familiar with the site, and was secured by a rope.

Among the possible reasons is the high degree of erosion on the rock.
