A MUM-OF-TWO plunged 150ft to her death while searching for a natural infinity pool she’d seen in a viral TikTok video.
Teacher Victoria Luck and her partner Matthew Radnor got lost while searching for the beauty spot near the Llanberis Pass on Snowdonia, Wales.
Mr Radnor had taken the 47-year-old from their Wolverhampton home to Betws-y-Coed for the weekend as an early Christmas present.
But tragedy struck as they scoured the mountain for the pool after Mr Radnor saw a clip about it on the social media site, the Daily Post reports.
The pair, who were with their black and white Collie-cross dog Louis, decided to take different routes after losing their bearings on the notorious ‘knife-edged’ Crib Goch ridge.
Mr Radnor picked a path that was easier for the pet.

Moments later, he heard Ms Luck “yelp”.
“I saw the infinity pool on TikTok and showed it to her,” he told an inquest today.
“She was quite taken with it and thought it looked amazing so we decided to go.”
The pair decided to split so the dog could have an easier walk, it was said.

Mr Radnor began shouting for help after hearing Ms Luck fall.
A coastguard rescue helicopter found her fatally injured, and she died hours later, six days before Christmas 2021.
Mr Radnor said the pair had met just a few months before the tragedy and “hit it off straight away”.
“We were in love, I felt like I had met my soulmate and within two weeks we were making plans for the future,” he said.
“We planned to get married.”
Assistant senior coroner for North West Wales Sarah Riley recorded a conclusion that Ms Luck’s death was down to “misadventure”.
She said: “They were on their way back down when she fell 150ft. Mr Radnor did not witness the fall, but did hear her scream.
“There were no established paths in the area, and this was not a known route to descend Crib Goch.

“Mr Radnor confirmed that they did not have a map and were not using any apps on their mobiles as navigation aids.”
She ruled Ms Luck died from multiple injuries due to a fall from height.
