Park rangers recovered the bodies of Moorthy and 29-year-old Vishnu Viswanath on Thursday about 800 feet (245 meters) below Taft Point.
The husband's brother had revealed that the couple had set up a tripod close to the ledge of the cliff before they fell. Together, they ran the blog Holidays and HappilyEveryAfters, as well as an accompanying Instagram account, which documented their travels across the world.
"A lot of us including yours truly is a fan of daredevilry attempts of standing at the edge of cliffs and skyscrapers", reads the photo's caption, "but did you know that wind gusts can be FATAL??? Our life is it worth a photo?".
It took two days for the park's officials to retrieve their bodies, which were mangled beyond recognition. I've been known to go out on ledges and put myself in sticky situations just to get a photo, but I know I need to keep in mind that, at any time, something could go wrong somewhere and that the risk I'm taking could turn into something much, much worse in a heartbeat. Moorthy wrote on an Instagram post with a photo of her sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon.
More than 250 people have died worldwide in the last six years while taking selfies, according to a recent study from researchers in India published in the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care.
Authorities are not sure what caused them to fall at scenic Taft Point.
The couple visited the Grand Canyon in March.
The couple's last picture was captured by another couple who was visiting the National Park and Meenakshi happened to photobomb their selfie. Matteson noticed Meenakshi among the crowd because of her pink-dyed hair. "She gave me the willies". He said, "She was very close to the edge, but it looked like she was enjoying herself". Two people who knew the couple, however, believe they may have been trying to take a photo, The Washington Post reported. But he said she appeared comfortable.
Dr. Nisha Kuruvilla, a professor at the College of Engineering, Chengannur in Alapuzha district in Kerala state, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that 29-year-old Vishnu Viswanath and 30-year-old Meekakshi Moorthy were her students and had married at a Hindu temple in Kerala four years ago. "She didn't seem like she was in distress or anything".
