1 dead, 1 missing in Yosemite National Park near Hetch Hetchy

FRESNO, Calif.

Park officials say around 8:30 Wednesday morning, a group of five people began hiking near Hetch Hetchy.

Two men tried to cross a bridge, but water was flowing over the crossing because of all the heavy rain and melting snow. The men were swept into the Tuolumne River.

Search teams recovered one body. They're still searching for the other person. The identities of the two men have not yet been released.
