I cannot imagine what the poor girl went through ,falling to your death not top on anniversary list!
Interesting anniversary gift..I'm sure the intentions were there, just like those that jump off a 200 ft high canyon bridge with a bungee cord

How many people would normally do that if not assured that it was completely safe beforehand. But getting on a plane is similar..it's routine
and acceptable risk..until something happens.
In my youth 17-18, I was employed by CB radio contractor here in Ottawa to put up these triangular tv tower sections for
CB radio base stations. It was the most dangerous thing I have every done (next to riding a motorcycle and crashing it
on a curve) and one tower was 150ft high buiding was about 40-50ft and the tower was on top of the roof of
the garage. That last section (even with a safety belt) was scary, with the guyed tower wiggling and moving and
I had to place a 10ft antenna in the middle of it. My knees started to shake as it took all my strength to hoist a 10 foot
section into the next and bolt it down in 3 places. It took all the adrenaline and strength I could muster as each
section weighed about 35 or 40lbs, but I finished the job,climbed down and never did it again.
Too risky for me.

One suspects the pilot realized he had done something wrong in his pre-flight check. Otherwise why try to destroy the recording?
I would expect that the harness to fasten her in would have a special strap and buckle that goes between the legs to prevent a person from slipping out of the rest of the harness. This is all speculation of course, but it is possible that that snap buckle was not fastened and he did not ensure it was before taking off the cliff. If this was her first flight and he didn't check it was fastened and secured properly..it would be a case for a negligence lawsuit.
