Parents of 2 among 3 dead after fall in icy Arizona lake
A mother and father of two as well as another parent, all Indian nationals, were the drowning victims recovered from a frigid Arizona lake.
The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the identities of 49-year-old Narayana Muddana and his wife, Haritha Muddana, and 47-year-old Gokul Mediseti.
Authorities say deputies in Forest Lakes responded Monday afternoon to reports that three people were missing in Woods Canyon Lake. Rescuers pulled Haritha Muddana from the water, but she was pronounced dead.
The two men were found the next day.
Officials say they had been posing for pictures on the icy lake when they fell through.
A GoFundMe purported to be for the families has already raised over half a million dollars.
