2 fall to their deaths at Arches National Park in Utah

A 30-year-old man was also injured in the accident at what the park called “the world’s most famous natural stone arch.”

Two tourists were dead and another was injured Friday after falling into a natural, deep bowl formation under Utah’s iconic Delicate Arch at Arches National Park, authorities said.

The accident in wet, slick conditions on grounds covered by stone formations and “biological soil crust” was reported at 7:30 a.m., Arches National Park Chief Ranger Scott Brown said.

The trail up to Delicate Arch has reopened for use. Winter conditions make for slippery hiking; proceed with caution.
