Kaweah Commonwealth, June 15, 2018.


"On Sunday, June 21, park rangers received a report that a man had been swept downstream in the Middle Fork of the Kaweah River that is accessed by a steep dirt trail from the parking lot of the Sequoia National Park entrance sign."

"Daniel Torres, 37, of Los Angeles was having his photo taken with his daughter at the river’s edge, she accidentally slipped and entered the water. Her father immediately entered the water and pushed the young girl into the clutches of her mother safely on shore."

"Unable to swim, the current pulled Daniel beneath the surface and he never had another chance to self-rescue."
