Bradley alum and wife die after fall at Yosemite National Park

A man who graduated from Bradley University in Peoria and his wife died last week after falling from a popular cliff outlook at Yosemite National Park in California.

The Washington Post reports Vishnu Viswanath, 29, and Meenakshi Moorthy, 30, were possibly taking a selfie when they fell about 800 feet off Taft Point.

Viswanath completed his master’s program in computer science in Peoria. He and his wife were both born in India, and lived in New York until recently moving to California, the Post reported.

The couple was adventurous, frequently posting photos on their travel blog and social media pages.
