"According to NBC Fresno affiliate KSEE, witnesses said a man and woman climbed over the guardrail for a better view of the 320-foot waterfall.

They reportedly encouraged their children to climb over too. Before the children climbed over the rail the parents began to slip, KSEE reported. A male family member who jumped over the guardrail to help also fell over the edge of the falls, KSEE said."



It was also reported that this year alone 8 people have died in similar incidents related to high runoff levels in the park.

    I was gonna make a joke until I saw the kids reference. Gee you think the park service put that guardrail there for a reason.

    Too many people think it is Disney Land...These are real waterfalls.

    It ain't Disney Land and the ride didn't end in a gift shop. This is really sad.

    Why do they think they call it a guard rail?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
