Divers recover forgotten memories on phone lost after cliff fall

A North-West woman who fell from a cliff at Parsons Falls after a freak accident 15 months ago says she plans to return to the area. It comes a week after divers retrieved a phone from the falls which was lost on the day of her accident. Stewart and Kerry Geard were hiking with a group of about 15 people, including their three daughters, last year when Kerry tripped and fell down Parsons Falls. Mrs Geard doesn't remember anything about the fall but Mr Geard remembers it vividly.
