“For five days up to when we left, my mom had warned me about falling off the cliff or being blown off. So when we were hiking around the corner, I found a good spot where I could stand on the ledge. He [her boyfriend] angled the camera just right and he took a great picture,” Busch was quoted as saying by ABCNews.com.
“I messaged it to her first and she works for a medical auditing company and there are women who have known me since day one, and they freaked out over it also. I emailed it to them, too, and they were all freaking out over it saying I gave them a heart attack,” Busch added.
Busch‘s mom was upset, but she is fine now. “She’s fine. She wasn’t even angry. She was just relieved upset,” Busch reportedly said.
