NEW DELHI (AP) — Two people who fell to their deaths from a popular overlook at Yosemite National Park in the western U.S. were an Indian couple who studied engineering together.

Dr. Nisha Kuruvilla, a professor at the College of Engineering, Chengannur in Alapuzha district in Kerala state, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that 29-year-old Vishnu Viswanath and 30-year-old Meekakshi Moorthy were her students and had married at a Hindu temple in Kerala four years ago.

Kuruvilla described them as "very good students" and "fond of traveling."

Park rangers recovered their bodies Thursday from about 800 feet (245 meters) below Taft Point, a vertigo-inducing granite ledge that doesn't have a railing.

Yosemite spokeswoman Jamie Richards said in a statement that park officials were investigating the deaths and that could take several days.
