Yosemite missing: Search intensifies for man swept over waterfall


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.
