Three hurt in Yosemite rock slide
1:33 PM, October 8, 2008

One minute, they were in the midst of one of California's loveliest spots. The next, a swift and sudden rock slide had buried cabins, closed a road and left three visitors in need of medical care.

The slide is the second in two days at the national park. About 1,000 people, including visiting schoolchildren, are evacuated.

SACRAMENTO -- A major rock slide this morning at Yosemite National Park injured three visitors, destroyed more than half a dozen cabins and prompted park officials to evacuate popular Curry Village as a precaution.

The slide let loose about 7 a.m. more than halfway up the 3,200-foot face of Glacier Point, which looms above the tent cabins and concession services on the valley floor below.
