Hikers Fall to Their Death at National Park

Two hiking tourists fell to their deaths while hiking in a popular area of Arches National Park in Utah.

A 30-year-old man was also injured in the fall Friday morning, Arches National Park Chief Ranger Scott Brown said. Authorities responded to the bowl area under the popular Delicate Arch.

When they arrived on the scene, they found a 60-year-old woman and a 65-year-old man dead from their injuries. The 30-year-old man was taken to an area hospital for treatment, police said. His condition is unknown at this time.

Authorities believe that they were all related and visiting the area from California. The cause of the fall is still under investigation, but a wintry mix of rain and snow on the trail when the incident occurred, officials said.
