Another visi­tor to Grand Canyon dies in fall

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

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.
