Hiker dies after falling 200 feet off a ledge in Grand Canyon National Park
The hiker, a 44-year-old man whose identity has not been revealed,
was near the rim west of the Bright Angel Point Trail on the national park's North Rim.
According to officials, the man was off the trail when he fell off the rim.
Rangers arrived at the scene shortly after 3:30 p.m. and discovered the man's body "approximately 200 feet below the rim."
