AN inquest into the death of a woman who died when the car she was in fell off a cliff was opened and adjourned yesterday.

Ann Mary Robins was in a black Suzuki Swift which dropped around 20ft from a wall at Corbière and landed on its roof on 7 April.

The inquest heard that when emergency services arrived they found that the 84-year-old widow had been restrained by the seatbelt and was left hanging upside-down.

They took both Mrs Robins and the driver to the Hospital. Paramedics and accident and emergency doctors performed CPR on Mrs Robins in an effort to revive her but she was pronounced dead at 7.45pm.

There were said to be no suspicious circumstances in the incident.

Assistant Coroner Cyril Whelan adjourned the inquest to allow for further investigations and ruled that Mrs Robins’s body be released.
