Helicopter pilot discovers body below the rim
Williams-Grand Canyon News

On Dec. 8, rangers recovered a body that was spotted by Grand Canyon National Park's helicopter pilot on a routine flying mission. Rangers located the body below the Abyss Overlook on Hermit Road (also known as the West Rim Drive.)

After the pilot discovered the body, emergency personnel flew two park rangers into the canyon to begin investigations and to prepare the body for transport. At that time, the rangers determined the body belonged to a male of undetermined age. After officials completed initial investigations, they flew the body to the South Rim and transported to the Station One Ambulance Bays where it was met by the Coconino County Medical Examiner.

The identity of the deceased is not currently known. The National Park Service in collaboration with the Coconino County Medical Examiner is conducting an investigation into the incident.
