Park officials say the bridge where the group was crossing was open to the public but it was filled with water from rain and snow runoff.
Victims: Both victims were doctors that worked in the Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital emergency room in Whittier. The two men were identified as Dr. Gregory Meyer, an emergency medical specialist who worked at the hospital since 1998; and Richard Fox, a physician's assistant in the emergency department, working at the hospital since 2003. They were part of a group that had been backpacking for several days through Yosemite National Park this was the fourth year that the group of five has taken the trip to Yosemite.
Park officials confirmed Meyer is presumed dead but they are still searching for his body. Fox's body has been recovered.
