Nature Another Grand Canyon tourist has died trying to take a photo

An investigation into the incident is being conducted by the National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner.

Grand Canyon National Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the USA, drawing almost 6.4 million visitors a year ago.

A man died while visiting the Grand Canyon on Thursday after he fell off a canyon rim in the national park, officials said.

Rescuers were alerted by a bystander and the man's body was recovered several hours later, about 122 metres below the rim by the park's helicopter and a technical rescue team, park spokesperson Murray Shoemaker said. The victim's identity has not been released.

Park rangers said he fell at a location east of the Yavapai Geology Museum and his body was later found 400 feet below the canyon rim.

The name and hometown of the man wasn't immediately available.

The burger will cost about a dollar more than its beef alternative, due to its higher cost in producing the plant-based patty. Nestle's new products are made from soy and wheat proteins, with plant extracts such as beetroot, carrot and bell pepper.

The man in his 50s was taking photos when he stumbled and fell. The horseshoe shaped bridge, a famous observation and photo sight on the Hualapai reservation, was closed to the public the following day, the Associated Press reported.

Two other people were reported to have died at the park in the same week, on March 26 and March 28.

The first of the three deaths was not the result of a fall, according to Vanessa Ceja-Cervantes, a spokeswoman for the Grand Canyon National Park.

Wednesday's death prompted a warning from the National Park Service to visitors. That death occurred near the Grand Canyon Skywalk, an outlook hovering over a 1,000-foot-high cliff.

Grand Canyon National Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the US, drawing almost 6.4 million visitors a year ago.
