Park officials say rock falls overall have killed 16 people since 1857 and injured more than 100.
Scott Gediman, from the park, said: From what I understand they were buried under rock... they were crushed by falling rocks. There's no word on his condition.
On Thursday a slab of granite tumbled off the park's famous climbing destination El Capitan, injuring an elderly man driving nearby. Nature is powerful and we are small and there is something necessary in that I think. But fatalities are rare. Rescuers reached them within an hour and pulled them from the rubble, where they were trapped under a rock, Gediman said.
It's the second rock slide in as many days, during the peak of climbing season.
He said Wednesday he did not know who was killed and injured and did not immediately respond Thursday to phone and email messages seeking updated information. The couple were at the base of El Capitan when the rockfall occurred.

"It was done at tremendous peril to the rescuers because there were three subsequent rock falls that were all almost as big and would have killed anybody at the base", he said.
