A California woman was killed on Sunday while on a closed trail in Yosemite National Park, according to officials.
Xuan Wang, a 56-year-old woman who lived in Cupertino, was on the Mist Trail around 12:30 p.m. when she was “struck by falling rock and ice,” the National Park Service said. Wang later died from her injuries. The park service said that the Mist Trail where Wang was killed is closed during this time of the year because of “icy and hazardous conditions,” and that signs are posted in the area. Wang ignored the signs, went around the gate and the incident happened on the trail leading to Vernal Fall,” officials said.
