A British tourist was killed and his partner was injured in a rockfall on Wednesday in Yosemite National Park. Both climbers were hiking at the bottom of El Capitan when a huge chunk of granite gave way, a park official confirmed on Thursday.

When paramedics arrived, they found the man dead and the woman was suffering from serious injuries, said Park Ranger Scott Gediman.
