It was just a tragic accident.

A young man and woman whose bloody bodies were found on the rocks near the base of a San Pedro cliff had no intention of suicide, nor were they involved in any foul play.

Authorities ruled Friday the deaths of the young man and woman found at the base of a cliff near Point Fermin Park in San Pedro were accidental.

The bodies of 23-year-old Brandon Escobar and 21-year-old Rayana Valdez were discovered about 5:20 p.m. Monday on rocks near the shoreline in the 500 block of West Paseo Del Mar.

On Friday, the coroner’s office said autopsies determined that the cause of death for both was “multiple traumatic injuries” and their manner of death was listed as “accident.”

No other details about the accidental deadly fall were released.

Earlier this week, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im said there were no signs of foul play, labeling the case a death investigation.
