Husband crushed by rock , wife severely injured while celebrating 1st wedding anniversary

 A British climber was killed and his wife seriously injured living their 'big dream' on one of the toughest rock faces in the world.

Andrew Foster, 32, and his wife Lucy Foster, 28, from Cardiff, were crushed under tons of falling rock as they prepared for their climb at Yosemite's El Capitan in California.
Experienced climber, Andrew, was killed, but Lucy was rescued and airlifted to hospital where she is in a 'critical' condition.

Andrew died when a piece of granite measuring 131ft x 65ft tore away from the famous rock formation at 1.55pm on Wednesday. They had not yet begun climbing when he became completely buried by the shattered rock, which rained down on the base.
The couple, who were big adventurers and wrote a blog about experiences, were married a year ago and the three-week trip to the Yosemite National Park in California was part of their first wedding anniversary celebrations.
