A Romanian tourist has died in a fall below famed Bridalveil Fall in Yosemite National Park.
Authorities say 21-year-old Lucian Miu was scrambling on wet rocks below Bridalveil on July 31 when he fell about 20 feet. He died at a hospital.
The Fresno Bee says two other people suffered injuries in separate falls recently in the park.
One had hiked to a viewing platform below Bridalveil Fall on July 29 and then slipped while climbing up a boulder field toward a pool at the base.
The other slipped off a boulder at Lower Yosemite Fall and fell into a creek Aug. 1, becoming trapped underwater between rocks before managing to escape.
