A 26-year-old Southern California woman drowned after falling into a creek in Sequoia National Park this weekend, marking the third such fatality in the park this year.
The woman fell into the Silliman Creek along the Twin Lakes Trail, NBC4's media partner KPCC reports.
She was described only as a Beverly Hills resident who was reportedly hiking or camping with others. No further information about her identity or who was with her have been released.
Extreme winter snowfall coupled with the season's current heat wave has resulted in rapid snowmelt in California making for dangerous conditions in rivers and creeks.
