Another visitor to Grand Canyon dies in fall
Authorities say another visitor has died after falling from the edge of the Grand Canyon.
Park rangers found the body of a 70-year-old woman about 200 feet below the canyon’s South Rim on Tuesday.
Rangers responded to a call about a person needing help at a rocky point west of a popular overlook called Pipe Creek Vista. Before a rescue effort could be undertaken, the woman fell.
The National Park Service and the Coconino County medical examiner will investigate.
Earlier this year, a tourist fell to his death on a Native American reservation outside the park.
