A woman who died after a man landed on top of her while she out on a date has been described as "fearless" and "very kind".
A close pal of Taylor Kahle, 29, said she was "one of the good ones" and was out on a promising third date when tragedy struck on Sunday night in San Diego, US.
Her colleague Laurel McFarlane told NBC 7: "She was just very kind. She was one of the good ones.
“She had just met someone that she kind of liked – it was new, just starting out – and she was just excited that there was someone she was having a connection with.”
Dog-lover Taylor and her date didn't stay long at a pizza restaurant and CCTV footage shows them leaving just after 7.30pm and crossing a road together.
Moments later they walked beneath a parking structure where San Diego police said a man landed on top of her.
Both she and the man died. Her date wasn't harmed.
The clip showed two people walking behind them stunned by the fall and freezing for a second before running over to help them.
Laurel added: “That’s what makes you feel like she’s still going to walk through the door.
“I just want to hug her and tell her, ‘It’s going to be OK and we’re going to fix you up and you’ll be fine.’”

McFarlane is the owner of McFarlane Promotions, Inc., an event planning company known for its downtown holiday block parties and local events like San Diego Restaurant Week.
Taylor had worked there for the past nine years having started out as an intern.
Laurel said she was “painfully shy” in those early days but: “It was just incredible to watch this person blossom and be fearless.
“It was incredible to watch this woman evolve as a human. It was a real gift, actually.”

“Just this beautiful person, who had this incredible life ahead of them, is gone – in such a tragic way.
“She had so much more to give.
