YOSEMITE N.P. (CBS13) – A man and a woman died in Yosemite National Park after apparently falling from Taft Point, a popular sight-seeing scenic spot overlooking the Yosemite Valley.

It’s on the south side of the valley, southwest of glacier point, and rises 1,000 feet from the floor of the valley.

A statement from park officials says officials have not identified the names of the deceased. The incident is under investigation.

The point is named for former U.S. President William H. Taft.
