SALT LAKE CITY– The Mormon church states a 19-year-old Utah man serving a religious mission in Sydney, Australia, fell from a cliff and died at a park popular for whale seeing.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints stated Gavin Paul Zimmerman of West Haven, Utah, was with a group of other missionaries when he slipped Monday.

Church spokesman Daniel Woodruff says Zimmerman was at Cape Solander.

Zimmerman’s parents state in a statement that he was a high school track and football athlete who left for a proselyting objective in Sydney in August 2017. They say he had a deep spiritual faith and served in a number of management positions.

Objectives are considered initiation rites for lots of Mormons. Men serve 2 years and women serve 18 months.

SYDNEY– Johnny Depp’s spouse, Amber Heard, has actually been charged with unlawfully bringing the couple’s pet dogs to Australia.

Prosecutors on Thursday said that Heard was charged this week with two counts of unlawfully importing Pistol and Boo into Australia and one count of producing a false document.

The charges come 2 months after the nation’s agriculture minister bought the pooches to leave or deal with death.

They carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail and fines of more than 100,000 Australian dollars ($74,000).

The doggie debacle began in May, after Farming Minister Barnaby Joyce accused Depp of smuggling the pets aboard his private jet when he went back to Australia to resume recording of the fifth film in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series.

Heard has a Sept. 7 court date.
