Nothing emerged from this grisly discov ery to hint at what Hansch’s mistake might have been. Even so, Hansch had inadvertently set a record. He became the oldest per son—at age 40—ever to be accidentally (if it was an accident) swept over a waterfall fatally in Yosemite. Indeed, Hansch was also the only one over age 35 ever to have done this (on June 4, 1992, one older victim yet, 59-year-old Kenneth D. Fawcett of Manhattan Beach, California, did fall off Wildcat Falls while scrambling on the granite at its brink for a view directly over its edge, but he slipped off and fell 100 feet without ever having entered the current).
Yes! Loos had gained a good grip on the slippery 20 a / Off the Wall: Death in Yosemite shoreline boulder. Amazingly, it looked like he and Keen were going to make it back onto the bank at the very last second before shooting over the edge... But no. The powerful current now tore Loos’ hand away from the slimy, pol ished granite that was his lifeline. With his grip lost, the Merced now sucked the would-be rescuer to the brink with the terrified boy still locked tightly in his other arm. In the blink of an eye, both disappeared over the 317-foot drop.
But such placement, while fine for most visitors, can be ignored by those in a big hurry to get closer to the river and waterfall. 32 □ I Off the Wall: Death in Yosemite At any rate, Javier briefly dunked in the river while his wife watched their 8month-old son. After Javier climbed back onto shore, Sonia next waded into the stream. Instead of dunking or even swimming and then climbing right back out, she now began drifting on her back as if she were bobbing safely in a backyard swimming pool. In fact she was floating in an eddy immediately adjacent to powerful current flowing a mere forty yards from the brink of the 594-foot waterfall.
