On Friday, July 3 at roughly 12:35 p.m., the Grand Canyon Regional Communications Center acquired a report of a customer who fell from the rim west of Mather Stage. Responding rangers found the human body of Maria A. Salgado Lopez, 59, of Scottsdale, AZ close to 100 ft. down below the rim.
Ms. Salgado Lopez had been hiking off trail and taking photographs with spouse and children when she accidentally stepped off the edge. An investigation into the incident is being done by the Nationwide Park Services and the Coconino County Healthcare Examiner’s Office. No further information and facts is offered at this time.
Grand Canyon National Park personnel stimulate all website visitors to have a risk-free go to this getaway weekend by remaining on specified trails and walkways, often trying to keep a risk-free length from the edge of the rim, and keeping behind railings and fences at overlooks.
