Epitaph, She Liked Feathers
2009 Darwin Award Winner
Confirmed True by Darwin

(22 Feb 2009, Devon, UK) Location: A seaside town, a coastal trail. Fencing was in place to protect people from falling off the path, but this protective barrier was no match for the allure of a feather blown by the breeze. . .just out of reach. A woman in her forties climbed that fence and chased the elusive feather right off a seaside cliff.

There was no cure for what ailed her--she died of head injuries the following day.
