Fatal selfie

Viswanath and Moorthy.

LOS ANGELES — An Indian couple who fell to their deaths in California’s Yosemite National Park were apparently taking a selfie, according to a family member and media reports.

Vishnu Viswanath, 29, and Meenakshi Moorthy, 30, died last week after falling from Taft Point — a popular overlook at the park that does not have a railing — and their bodies were recovered by park rangers on Thursday.

Viswanath’s brother told local media in India that he believes the couple were taking a selfie when the tragedy happened.

The pair, who lived in the United States, were travel enthusiasts and had a blog called “Holidays and HappilyEverAfters” that chronicled their adventures.
