Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Authorities said two people have been killed and one injured after they fell from Utah's Delicate Arch.
The three people fell into Delicate Arch's lower bowl area at approximately 7:30 a.m. Friday, the Grand County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post. The fall killed a 65-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman.
"The third individual, a 30-year-old man, was flown by Classic Air Medical to Moab Regional Hospital," the sheriff's office post said. "It appears they were all from California and that they may be related."
Authorities were investigating the incident.
The Delicate Arch has become a state icon "and one of the most famous geological features in the world," the National Park Service website states. "The light opening beneath the arch is 46 feet high and 32 feet wide, making it the largest free-standing arch" in Arches National Park of "over 2,000 stone arches."
The Delicate Arch trail was temporarily closed after the incident, but has since been reopened.
