Italian man poses for photo before falling 650ft to death

An Italian man posed for a smiling, loved-up photo with his girlfriend — just moments before he plunged up to 650 feet to his death while trying to grab a dropped cellphone, according to reports.

Andrea Mazzetto, 30, snapped the shot Saturday with live-in lover Sara Bragante while climbing Altar Knotto, a rock in his hometown Rotzo named because of its likeness to an altar.

The couple shared regular Instagram stories of their hike and climb before Mazzetto fell to his death.

At some point, one of them lost a phone — and Mazzetto toppled to his death from a precipice while trying to get it, police told Corriere del Veneto, which put the fall at around 650 feet.

Rescue crews reached him with a chopper and pronounced him dead at the scene.

Before then, Mazzetto had updated his nearly 2,500 Instagram followers with regular posts on his hike with Bragante — who later shared their smiling selfie taken moments before her loved one’s death.

“Our cursed last photo together,” she wrote alongside the snap from their climb up Altar Knotto.

“You will always be with me, my little bear,” she wrote tenderly.

Sara Bragante shared what she called their "cursed last photo together."

Initial reports said he was trying to get his girlfriend’s phone, but police later told local media that it was Mazzetto’s own phone that fell.
