Yosemite river drowning tragedy: One boy dead, another missing after being swept away (nbcnews.com)
A 10-year-old boy is dead and a 6-year-old is missing after they were swept away in the Merced River in Yosemite National Park on Wednesday, a park spokesman said.
The boys were part of a family group from Southern California that hiked about a mile on the Mist Trail to Vernal Fall before stopping at a footbridge around 3 p.m. to hop in the Merced River.
But the boys were swept away in the strong current.
In July 2011, three visitors to the park were swept over the falls to their deaths. One body was recovered several weeks after the accident, and the others were found in November and December
