YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — Rangers at Yosemite National Park have identified the third body found in the Merced River as the last person swept over a waterfall in July.
Park spokesman Scott Gediman said Tuesday that 21-year-old Ramina Badal was identified through dental records and other means.
Badal had hiked the popular Mist Trail to the top of the 317-foot Vernal Fall with her friends from church — 27-year-old Ninos Yacoub and 22-year-old Hormiz David. They stopped to pose for photos in the river and were swept to their deaths.
Park rangers had stepped up the search efforts in recent weeks as the water flow slowed and snow had stayed at bay.
Badal’s body was found Saturday, just days after searchers spotted Yacoub’s body. David’s body was located in August.
