In a tragic event, an Indian couple died after falling 800 ft in a place with steep terrain in California’s Yosemite National Park this week, according to a press report.
They had been identified on Monday as a married couple in India residing in the USA, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The report stated that the couple had recently moved from New York later Vishnu Viswanath chose employment as a system engineer in Cisco, based in San Jose. Collectively, they chronicled their experiences of travelling across the globe in a website called’Vacations and happily ever after’.
Rangers recovered their bodies on the steep terrain on Thursday under Taft Point, a favourite tourist place that provides breathtaking views of the Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Falls, and El Capitan. Visitors had seen the bodies each day before.
Park spokesman Jamie Richards was quoted as saying in the report that”We do not understand exactly what caused them to collapse. We are trying to comprehend what occurred. We might never know, (but) out of what we see; this is a tragic collapse.”
Researchers were looking into the way in which the couple dropped or what had happened when the incident occurred in the famous place that’s a favourite location for visitors from all over the globe to take panoramic and unforgettable photographs.
