  • Grand Canyon visitor, 70, dies in fall from edge, authorities say

An elderly woman plummeted to her death in the Grand Canyon this week - the fifth person to die inside the national park this year.

Another visitor to Grand Canyon National Park has died after falling over the edge of the SouthRim, authorities said Tuesday.

But before rescuers could get to the woman, she fell - and responding rangers found her body about 200 feet below the rim, a spokesperson told the station.

Shortly after 1 p.m., park rangers received an alert that someone needed help at a point near the canyon's Pipe Creek Vista.

"That's when we began our rescue response, but before we were able to do a rescue she fell".

Her body was later recovered by the park's helicopter and rescue team of about 15 people, the release said.

The National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner will investigate the death.

On March 28, a man from from Hong Kong was taking pictures at an overlook when he slipped and fell, according to the Grand Canyon West.

Her death marks the third fatal fall from the canyon rim in 2019, The Arizona Republic reported.

In late March, another man fell to his death while trying to take pictures at the Hualapai reservation, located outside of national park borders.

The body of a Japanese tourist was also discovered in an undeveloped area of the park March 26, far from any overlook areas. The death is being treated as an accident.

In the previous year, 17 people have died at the national park.
