Person passes away following a fall from Pulpit Rock, a Norwegian cliff that appeared in ‘Mission Impossible’

According to authorities, a tragic incident occurred on Monday when a man fell from a high cliff in Norway. The cliff has been known for its appearance in a “Mission Impossible” film.

According to a report by CNN, Preikestolen, also known as “Pulpit Rock,” is a cliff towering over Lysefjord in southwestern Norway, rising to a height of 1,981 feet. The flat top of this famous hiking destination was showcased in the 2018 movie “Mission Impossible – Fallout,” starring Tom Cruise, as reported by The Times of London.

According to CNN, the Sør-Vest politidistrikt’s police attorney, Nina Thommesen, has confirmed that a man in his 40s has passed away. The man was traveling alone and was found with his cellphone and identification.

According to Norwegian police, they have a strong belief about the identity of the man, but his name has not been revealed yet.

According to Thommesen, the case is being investigated by the police as a fall accident and there is no suspicion of any criminal activity involved. As he told CNN, the authorities are not making any assumptions at this stage.

According to The Times, the natural platform that looks like a preacher’s pulpit has become a trendy spot for taking selfies. The organization responsible for maintaining the location refers to the cliff as “simply an extraordinary place.”

According to CNN, during the filming of “Mission Impossible – Fallout,” the location served as a double for Kashmir in an action sequence where the movie’s protagonists fall off a cliff.

As many as 2,000 fans eagerly made their way up the cliff to catch a glimpse of Cruise, and the acclaimed four-time Academy Award nominee expressed his admiration for the enthusiastic turnout.
