(CNN)Two people were killed and another was injured after they fell near Delicate Arch in Utah’s Arches National Park on Friday, authorities said.

A 65-year-old man and 60-year-old woman were found dead, the sheriff’s office said. The third person, a 30-year-old man, was flown to a regional hospital, the release said.

All three individuals are believed to be from California and may be related, the sheriff’s office said.

    Chief Ranger Scott Brown told CNN affiliate KSL-TV that the cause of the fall is still unknown, though the trail was wet and slick at the time of the incident.

    The Delicate Arch is a “widely recognized symbol of the state of Utah and one of the most famous geologic features in the world,” according to the National Park Service website.
