Park visitors the next morning saw the camera and alerted officials, who "used high-powered binoculars to find them and used helicopters to airlift the bodies", he said. She said Moorthy and Viswanath were both good students who were fond of traveling and had married at a Hindu temple in Kerala in southern India four years ago.

A young couple fell to their deaths in Yosemite National Park last week.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the couple, both software engineers working in the United States, had recently moved from NY after Viswanath took a job as a systems engineer at Cisco, based in San Jose.

Moorthy documented their adventures on a blog called Holidays and HappilyEverAfters, posting happy snaps of her husband and musings they had throughout their travels.

Katta described Moorthy as extremely positive and enthusiastic. Clearly, common sense must come into play when visiting such locations, and the couple, Vishnu Viswanath, 29, and Meenakshi Moorthy, 30, would not have been the only ones taking selfies. Katta, a 24-year-old data engineer in NY, met Vishnu Viswanath at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, where they were both completing a masters program in computer science. "I believe i can touch the skyyy", she wrote in the post. Investigators were looking into how the couple fell or what had occurred when the accident happened at the famous spot which is a favourite place for tourists from around the world to take scenic and memorable photos.

In an eerie coincidence, another couple who hiked to Taft Point captured pictures of Moorthy prior to her fall, saying she appears in the background of two of their selfies.

"She was very close to the edge, but it looked like she was enjoying herself", said Matteson, who lives in Oakland, California. "She gave me the willies".

"We still don't have any clear idea exactly what happened", Jamie Richards, a spokeswoman for Yosemite National Park, told The Mercury News, a Bay Area newspaper. But he said she appeared comfortable.

Is our life worth just one photo?

"There is a railing at the overlook, but there are plenty of places you can go near there without railings", she said. They shared photos of themselves in attractive places - along with warning of travel dangers.
