Couple who died in fall at Yosemite’s Taft Point identified


The two people who fell to their deaths at Taft Point in Yosemite have been identified, the National Park Service said Monday.

They are Vishnu Viswanath, 29, and Meenakshi Moorthy, 30. Both were citizens of India who were living in the United States. 

Officials are still investigating when the pair fell and from what spot at Taft Point, which is 3,000 feet above the famed Yosemite Valley floor.

The investigation will take several weeks, according to the National Park Service.

More than 10 people have died at the park this year, some from natural causes and others from falls.

No further details were available.
