(Scroll down for video) A father watched in horror as his daughter fell to her death while helping him.

16-year-old Aditi Sanghi of Jaipur, India, fell from the roof of her university and died at the hospital.

The incident was captured on video and was posted online.

The video was taken by classmates who had gathered at the university’s rooftop terrace to train in zip-lining and mountain climbing.

The training was being conducted by the victim’s father, 50-year-old Sunil Sanghi, who was a professional in the sport.

He has been teaching adventure sports for over three decades.

Aditi showed her classmates how to zip-line. When she finished her round she got off and walked back to the rooftop terrace.

While another girl was going down the zip-line, Aditi suddenly lost her balance and fell off the six-story building, officials at the International College for Girls (ICG) said.

Sunil Sanghi is associated with a mountaineering academy in Jaipur, and offers training at several universities. His daughter often accompanied him to these practice sessions.

Police officer Mukesh Chaudhary said that they are investigating what led to the death and how Aditi fell.

“We will question witnesses who were with her. It does not appear to be a case of suicide,” Chaudhary said.
