Couple Plunge to Death From Yosemite’s Taft Point for Proposals

Couple Plunge to Death From Yosemite: Two people who died in Yosemite National Park last week were identified as citizens of India living in the United States.

Couple Plunge to Death From Yosemite

The Rangers recovered the bodies of Vishnu Viswanath, 29, and Meenakshi Moorthy, 30, on steep terrain on Thursday below Taft Point, an area known for its spectacular views. It is said that the couple fell into the void while taking some photographs.

The young couple lived and worked in the United States. They had recently moved to New York after Viswanath took a job as a systems engineer at Cisco, based in San Jose.

Yosemite National Park has become a favorite place for photos of wedding engagements. Last week, photographer Matthew Dippel took a photo of two strangers at Taft Point. The image went viral after Dippel turned to social media to locate the couple. It’s about Charlie Bear and his girlfriend Melissa.

Although the cliff of Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular, it is also one of the most dangerous, since this year it has claimed the lives of 10 adventurers.
