Hong Kong Man's Body Recovered From Grand Canyon
GRAND CANYON WEST, Ariz. (AP) — The body of a Hong Kong man who fell over the edge of the Grand Canyon has been recovered.
A helicopter lifted the man's body from 1,000 feet below the rim Thursday afternoon. He had fallen earlier in the day while trying to take photographs.
David Leibowitz is a spokesman for Grand Canyon West, a popular tourist destination on the Hualapai reservation in northwestern Arizona.
He says the man's body will be taken to a medical examiner's office.
The man in his 50s was with a tour group at Eagle Point along the western edge of the Grand Canyon. His name hasn't been released.
