TWO LOVEBIRDS shared a romantic smooch on a bridge in Peru that turned fatal when they lost their balance and plunged to their deaths, a chilling video shows.

Maybeth Espinoz, 34, and Hector Vidal, 36, were locked in an embrace on Bethlehem Bridge in Cusco on Saturday when they fell 15 metres to their deaths, Metro UK reported.

She can be seen wrapping her legs around Vidal's waist before falling backward over the barrier - and pulling her boyfriend with her as they tumbled to the road below, the news outlet reported.

Ms Espinoz died en route to a local hospital, while Mr Vidal succumbed to his injuries later in the intensive care unit, Metro UK reported.

Ms Espinoz and Ms Vidal reportedly were mountaineers and had moved to Cusco to work as tour guides.
