Ali G, 35, was arguing with his partner Arzu G, 32, while walking along hills outside Dundar, north-eastern Turkey, when they both fell.
It is understood the pair were too busy arguing with each other and did not notice the cliff edge. They both toppled over Ali died on the spot. Arzu, however, survived the fall.
She staggered to a nearby road and begged passing cars to stop, according to local media reports. A school bus pulled over and took Arzu, who was seriously injured, to a hospital close by.
State prosecutors have ordered an autopsy to be carried out on her husband’s body. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
It comes after a Brit tourist died after slipping and plummeting almost 400ft off a cliff on the paradise Balearic island of Formentera.
The 55-year-old, who lived in London, plunged to his death on September 13 when he lost his footing while visiting a lighthouse called La Mola.
Local reports said he was with his partner and a group of friends when the tragedy occurred. Meanwhile, four tourists were killed and another 15 have been left injured after a tour bus plunged 330 feet down a cliff on the way back from Machu Picchu.
The horror accident happened last month when the minibus they were travelling in crashed into a ravine.
