Meenakshi Moorthy, 30, and her husband, Vishnu Viswanath, 29, fell to their deaths on Wednesday from Taft Point, which offers stunning views of Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Falls and El Capitan - a scenic area made even more popular after another couple was photographed during an apparent marriage proposal.

It was an image taken at 5:11pm that clearly shows the pink-haired Moorthy, 30, in the background of their photo at Taft Point. Moorthy wrote on an Instagram post with a photo of her sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon.

"Is our life just worth one photo?" she wrote.

Viswanath's brother, Jishnu Viswanath, said the couple left their camera's tripod near the ledge on Tuesday evening. Their bodies were recovered a day later by rangers, who worked for hours to reach them with assistance from a California Highway Patrol helicopter.

Ms Moorthy added: "A lot of us including yours truly is a fan of daredevilry attempts of standing at the edge of cliffs and skyscrapers, but did you know that wind gusts can be FATAL???"

The level of pettiness it takes for some to buy 200 front-row tickets, purely out of spite and so they'd be empty, is astounding. Hopefully though the tweet isn't the only response from Ja Rule , we're waiting for his kick back at the 43-year-old.

"We still do not know what caused them to fall", Mr Richards told the San Francisco Chronicle.

"Let us all try to be responsible digital citizens and use our "numbers" to be transparent and honest, shall we?" she said, in an apparent suggestion that fellow social media users use their popularity, or number of likes, responsibly. He said he saw Moorthy standing on a lower ledge closer to the edge than he and his girlfriend were standing.

'The person taking the photos contacted us this morning and said that [Viswanath and Moorthy] were there after dark'.

The couple were citizens of India who were living in the US, according to the Bee.

Moorthy was a self-proclaimed "travel-obsessed" blogger who captured photos around the world for her blog.
