A young woman of the United Kingdom, was found dead in a hotel with her head stuck between two sofas, police in Australia said.

21-year-old Kristina Rennell of Penn, who went on a backpacking adventure for several months, was found dead by her friend in her room at the Sunset Backpackers in Mildura.

She immediately called for help, but paramedics could not save the woman. Investigators believe that alcohol may have played a role in her death.

Rennell spent several months in the southern part of Asia, before settling in Australia. Rennell planned on starting a job on a farm picking fruit.

A court heard that Rennell was seen jumping up the stars of the hotel and drinking. The friend found Rennell lying upside down between the two sofas with her legs leaning up against a wall.

The friend told investigators that it seemed as if Rennell was jumping around on the sofas before her head became stuck.
