Autoridades de Estados Unidos dieron cuenta de una tragedia que afectó a una joven pareja de origen indio. Las dos personas fallecieron luego de caer desde un precipicio del Parque Yosemite, el cual está ubicado en la cordillera Sierra Nevada de California (Estados Unidos).

Los cuerpos correspondían a Vishnu Viswanath, de 29 años, y Meenakshi Moorthy, de 30. Ambos eran influenciadores de Instagram en su tiempo libre y se encontraban realizando un viaje por la zona de la carretera californiana.

Según detalla el sitio norteamericano Yahoo, los dos murieron tras haber caído desde un acantilado de 240 metros de profundidad. La policía aún no ha determinado con claridad cuáles fueron las causas que propiciaron el fatal desenlace.

CHASING SUNSETS or CHASING LIKES ??? 😛 … Sooo today on #socialmediabadasstribe we are talking about limits of #doitforthegram.😶Yeah sure it can be limitless but guys, we reaaaallly need to have boundaries(this is handy as life lessons too but we will revisit that later😉) A lot of us including yours truly is a fan of daredevilry attempts of standing at the edge of cliffs ⛰and skyscrapers🌆, but did you know that wind gusts can be FATAL??? ☠️ Is our life just worth one photo? … When we squirm at another selfie attempt gone south 😱 from a skyscraper, let’s remember to save that in our core memory 🧠 and not the memory dump 🛢(I am still on the Inside Out 🎬 train y'all 😬) Same applies when we get our knickers in a twist and hog a spot till we get the perfect shot🙄 I know I know, I am guilty as charged for all of this 🤦‍♀️ and if I didn’t have Mr. Two Goody Shoes, Vishnu 🤭 with me, I am not even sure if I would have written this post. … Let us all try to be responsible digital citizens and use our “numbers” to be transparent and honest, shall we?🤗 None of us is perfect and the more we accept it and share our flaws as much as our wins, we are one step closer to creating a sane social media without the scary brouhahas.💕✨ … Still there?👀 Woohoo, a backflip is in order, or wait maybe a pizza? 🍕 What about a unicorn ice-cream 🦄 🍦 with some Disney-approved cotton candy 🍭🍬 and pixie dust infused sprinkles 🧚‍♀️ if…..IF you could tell me the one time you were effin’ proud of being candid and real AF in social media? 😎 … PS – Not sponsored but sweatshirt is from @radearthsupply • • • #grandcanyonnps #northrim #instagramaz #visitarizona #travelarizona #shotzdelight #discovertheroad #usaroadtrip #visittheusa #outdoorsusa #exploretheusa #womenwhoexplore #iamtb #radparks #thediscoverer #gtgi #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #hikemore #radgirlslife #travelreality #dreamscape @womenwhoexplore @visit_arizona @visittheusa @shotzdelight

Jamie Richards, portavoz del parque, indicó al medio San Francisco Chronicle que la caída de ambos se produjo en el sector bajo Taff Point, el cual es uno de los puntos más populares y peligrosos de todo el parque.

“Yosemite es un lugar salvaje y espectacular. Si no pones atención a tus pies es muy fácil deslizarse y caer. Pero en lo que va de año una decena de personas han muerto allí, seis de ellas debido a caídas”, determinó.

La pareja se había casado hace cuatro años y se había mudado a vivir a la ciudad de San José (Estados Unidos). Los dos dedicaban sus días de vacaciones para viajar por lugares extremos y retratar sus aventuras en Instagram, donde poseen la suma de 13 mil seguidores.

SWIPE RIGHT TO SEE SOME EPICNESS 🤘 FROM #WOMENSMARCHONNYC … You know when I said I have a thing for badass 👊Wonder(ful) Women? Yesterday, I decided to be one myself and participated in the #WomensMarch here. I went alone and was on the verge of a meltdown 😶 for the first few minutes since everyone had their own squad and a tad reserved to accept this pink haired girlie 💕👩 but then I met my SISTERHOOD and I came back with a fiery tribe 🔥to dance with and mad memories to die for ✨ … It is ironical like @gloriasteinem said, the moment a woman chooses to behave like a full-human-being, she gets into a hell lotta troubles,😏and from yesterday my sisterhood and I, we have been subjected to a lot of “trolls” and controversies from people who couldn't care less about all this.🙄Let me help you here.🤗 〰️ WHY are we doing this and WHO are we doing this for⁉️ … 🔻We want the society to RESPECT OUR CHOICES. Treat us like a FULL HUMAN BEING. We love being a Mother/Wife/Chef but we do not want it to be FORCED on us. 〰️ 🔻Many women are labeled and objectified and not treated as INDIVIDUALS.We want to end that. 〰️ 🔻As much as we love our near and dear ones and would even die for them, we do NOT exist solely for EVERYBODY ELSE’S PURPOSE. 〰️ 🔻Like many trailblazing visionaries and virtuosos did before us and still doing, if THEY had not marched for us, we would probably still forced to be with shaven heads and slaving for someone else. 〰️ 🔻So it all boils down to #pinkpositivelight “RESPECT MY EXISTENCE OR EXPECT MY RESISTANCE” (@royabab 😍) 〰️〰️〰️ 🔴 Also, Feminism is NOT equal ❌ to Men-Hating. If anything we love and respect the men(those who return the feelings i.e.) in our life and again like Gloria said, “A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.” … Please feel free to agree/disagree with these ideologies in comments and I will be more than happy to contribute to it💕 • • • #TogetherWeRise #TimesUp #NotOnOurWatch #NeverthelessShePersisted #DefineFeminism #GurlsTalk #WonderWomen #DameTravelerConnection #DameTraveler #SheisNotLost #TimeOutNewYork #seeyourcity #TheWeekOnInstagram

Según detalla el último medio citado, Meenakshi Moorthy se desempeñaba como ingeniero de sistemas en la mencionada ciudad y, junto a Vishnu Viswanath, gustaban de visitar zonas como el Gran Cañón (Colorado) o el Valle de la Muerte (California).

De forma insólita, en una de sus fotos ya comentaban los riesgos que corrían al retratar sus experiencias en lugares tan extremos: “¿Sabías que las ráfagas de viento pueden ser fatales? ¿Vale nuestra vida solo una foto?”.

En entrevista con Yahoo, un amigo de la pareja, que no quiso revelar su nombre, negó que ambos tomaran la decisión de suicidarse en el lugar, aseverando que su muerte se produjo por un “increíble accidente”.

Sooo tis’ no secret that I have always admired and aroused by women who dare to stand out in the crowd just by being themselves🌟You know the passionate ones🤘who “do their thing” no matter what curve balls the society throws at them, the driven ones👊who venture on their wildest dreams,and whether they are rule makers or rule breakers, what they all have in common is, they stand darn true to themselves and their ideals🦄and don’t act anything less than what they are, just for the society to “accept” them.😏 … And Wonder Woman(fictitious or not, we will come to that soon) is exactly all that and more! She is strong (hell yes!) yet sensitive.⚡️She is badass but she doubted her strength and even gets yelled at for that.⚡️She is stubborn but she is also kind.⚡️Do you see, there is a Wonder Woman👩⚔️in each and every one of you.Just let her shine through ✨✨✨and you will be unstoppable.🤘 … Sooo ladies, sparkling in the #pinkpositivelight 💕✨ let’s do this for the 🦋onder 🦋oman inside us. Tell me your strengths that you are proud of.🤘Not the others, but what do YOU love the most about yourself?😇And I can tell you this my Amazons,⚔️👩once you believe in the spark ⚡️which makes you “you”, nothing can stop you from lassoing your way to be a Sassy, Strong, Ass-kicking Wonder Woman.🤘So c’mon, together let us pop, fizz and clink🥂to all the Wonder Women out there and celebrate their quirks and strengths.🎇 … PS-For the “Super Man” reading this post, it would be great if you could share with us about the Wonder Woman🤘in your life. I can’t promise if Vishnu will dress up for a post like this for the men but we’ll see 😉 … PPS – Please be careful standing at the edge of canyons/mountains/high rise buildings. The wind gusts are extremely dangerous☠️ and your adrenaline rage is not worth your life. We waited quite a bit and made sure of this. • • • #dametraveler #ladiesgoneglobal #girlsborntotravel #wearetravelgirls #iamtb #myfavtourlina #sheisnotlost #femmetravel #citizenfemme #sheexplores #travelista #traveltales #thediscoverer #travelust #dreamscape #instagramaz #visitarizona #timeoutsociety #inlovewiththisplace #dametravelerconnection #sidewalkerdaily #travelinladies

“Les gustaba viajar y hacer fotos. Probablemente subieron a los acantilados para hacer un par de retratos. Tienen miles así. Estaban realmente interesados en estas cosas”, concluyó.

I believe I can flyyy 🎶 I believe I can touch the skyyyy 🌥 … Aaaand touch the sky I did from an effin’ 18000 ft thanks to the unconditional love-ninja in my life, Vishnu ❤️, who literally took this year’s anniversary surprise a notch “higher” than last year’s hot air ballooning adventure 🎈, by gifting this adrenaline junkie with one of the highest tandem skydives in the world! 🤘 … Hurling myself out of a perfectly functioning airplane was a dream forever for this pink-haired 💕daredevil and when it fiiiiinalllly turned into reality, it was a sensory overload of exhilaration and exultation to say the least! Between hyperventilating from overexcitement and sucking in the supplemental oxygen to get to 18000 ft, I barely noticed that suddenly I am sitting with my legs dangling out of the plane ✈️ at 18k feet with views to ahem, “die” for 😉 … As the beaming ocean vistas 🌊 beckoned me from far below, I realized that the wind whipping past whisked my breath away from my airways, deafened my eardrums and sent me into a euphoric disarray of emotions while we plummeted towards what eerily looks like Google Earth Maps in real life 😄 … And then it was time to PARTY in the sky! 🎉🎊🎉WoooHooo! Twists 'n' turns, screams 'n' spins ensued 🤘The 90sec freefall, aaaaah those 90 seconds of intoxicating freedom how I wish I could describe THAT! 🖋I am a wishful wordsmith, but there are times I just keep writing and deleting unable to put the zilliony emotions I experience to words, and yet those are simply some of the most magical moments in my life ✨✨✨(and every single time they have involved Vishnu in some way or the other 💕) Sooo since they say a picture speaks a 1000 words, here's a teeny video clip from my skydiving adventure which I hope will make up for my want of words🤗 • • • #skydiving #skydivesantabarbara #ibelieveicanfly #iloveskydiving #adrenalinerush #tandemskydive #freefalling #adventuretravel #18000ft #bucketlist #freefall #skydive #roadtrippers #roadtripusa #globalstorybook #girlgetters #radgirlslife #traveladdicts #femaletravelbloggers #skydivinggram #traveltales #exploreaholic #pinkhairdontcare #skydivegram #skydiving_everyday @skydive_gram
