MOAB, Utah – The Grand County Sheriff’s Office on Monday released the identities of two people who fell to their deaths at Arches National Park on Nov. 29.

In a statement, authorities identified the deceased as Toshiaki Amimoto, 65; and Etoko Amimoto, 60.

A 30-year-old male  survived the fall but was seriously injured. He was transported by helicopter to a local hospital.

According to GCSO, the family of three, from Torrence, California, were hiking a steep slope in a sandstone bowl next to Delicate Arch when they fell.

The weather was intermittent rain and snow at the time, and Arches National Park released a statement later warning visitors that “winter conditions make for slippery hiking; proceed with caution.”

The incident is currently under investigation by the National Park Service and Grand County Sheriff’s Office.
