Yosemite missing: Search intensifies for man swept over waterfall
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (KABC) -- Friends and family of a Sacramento man, swept over a waterfall in Yosemite National Park, are still hoping he will be found alive and safe.
Rangers say Aleh Kalman, 19, was swimming in the Merced River Saturday when swift currents pulled him over the 594-foot Nevada Fall.
A helicopter searched the area for the 19-year-old Saturday and Sunday as rangers and a search team searched on foot.
Park officials say Kalman was visiting with a church group.
The trail below the falls has been closed while the search continues.
