ISTANBUL: A 23-year-old woman, who went to visit her cousin in Turkey’s Istanbul, died after falling through the roof of a building while shooting a video for social media platform TikTok on Friday.

Her cousin recorded the moments of the dramatic death of Kubra Dogan in Esenyurt district, according to Anadolu Agency (AA).

Dogan and her cousin Helen decided to go to the roof to watch the sunset and shoot a video on Tik Tok. They spent some time on the roof taking photos and videos.
