Officials: Woman found dead in Yosemite was from China

August 3, 2017

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the woman found dead in Yosemite National Park was from China.


Park spokesman Scott Gediman says the woman has been identified as 27-year-old Chaocui Wang of China.


Officials on Monday confirmed the death on the Pacific Crest Train, in the northwestern portion of the California park.


About a week ago, the body of a Japanese tourist who was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail was found in a river in Kings Canyon National Park.


The body of 32-year-old Rika Morita was found July 23 submerged in the south fork of the Kings River at the 10,000-foot (3,000-meter) level of the park.


The body was retrieved a day later.


Runoff from a record winter snowfall in the Sierra Nevada has swollen rivers, making them swift and treacherous.
