Waterfall girl still in dad's arms; TRAGEDY.

A TRAGIC father and his girl who fell 50ft to their deaths at a waterfall were found dead in each others' arms.

James Gallacher, 35, and Soraya, three, are thought to have wandered from a sightseeing path when he plunged into a freezing 16ft deep pool.

A friend yesterday told how the family including Soraya's mum had a day at the beach near Nantcol waterfalls, in Llanbedr, Gwynedd.

She said: "They saw signs for the nature trail and followed the path. Soraya was picked up by her dad when he slipped. One minute he was there, the next gone.

"He banged his head and went under. When rescuers found them she was in his arms." Soraya's mother was said to be inconsolable at home in Partington, Manchester. Police and safety officials are investigating.
