Aliya Bulkan plunges into Kaieteur Falls


According to a Patamona legend, Kaieteur Falls was named for Chief Kai who acted to save his people by paddling over the falls in an act of self-sacrifice to Makonaima, the great spirit.

Sources say that at one point during the tour around The Falls, Bulkhan was seen to be lagging behind the other tourists, and that it was at this point that she was seen to make a sudden dash towards the edge of the precipice, screaming at the top of her voice as she plunged into the abyss below, leaving her friend and the other passengers in shock and disbelief.
