Yosemite rock slide
A HUGE new rock fall has hit California’s Yosemite National Park, cracking with a thundering roar off the El Capitan rock formation, injuring one person and sending huge plumes of white dust surging through the valley floor below.
The slide came a day after a giant slab of granite plunged from the same 2307m formation, killing a British man on a hiking and climbing visit and injuring his wife.
The man killed on Wednesday was Andrew Foster, 32, of Wales. The park said seven rock falls occurred in a fourhour period on Wednesday.
