Arizona’s Frozen Woods Canyon Lake Incident Victim Identified

The victims have been identified as 49-year-old Narayana Muddana, his wife Haritha Muddana, and another man Gokul Mediseti, 47. The trio, who died tragically after falling into the icy water, were Indian nationals. It is coming forward that the husband and wife had gone to the lake with their daughters. Sheriff deputy Jon Paxton said that they were up here, recreational, enjoying it, and wanted to get some pictures out on the ice.

What Happened To Them?

Talking about the incident, the firefighters said that two children and a woman were seen trying to save their loved ones when they slid through the ice. After a lot of attempts, they were finally moved out of the water. However, before the children and the other woman could ask people for help, they already died. It is said that the trio died of hypothermia, a medical emergency where the body temperature drops below normal, 37 degrees Celsius.

In simpler terms, it can be said that they died of extreme cold as they fell down the icy water that was too chilly, to say the least. Paxton further said that hypothermia sets in very quickly and if one does not know swimming, it gets even more difficult for them. One of the family’s close friends, Parvathi Mettu, started a GoFundMe Page for the Muddana and Mediseti families. At the time of writing this article, the page collected around $612,346. Narayana and Haritha are survived by their two daughters, Pujitha, 11, and Harshita, 7.

Sources confirm that the children witnessed the entire incident through their innocent eyes and saw their parents dying. Besides, Mediseti’s wife and his child were also present when the tragedy occurred. However, they both happen to be safe. The horrific incident that claimed three lives has garnered the attention of a large section of people on social media. Stay tuned with Social Telecast for more updates.
