Woman Rescued After Fall Into Canyon

Late yesterday afternoon, rangers rescued a 38-year-old woman who'd fallen from the rim near Mather Point, sustaining non-life-threatening injuries. Park dispatch received two separate 911 calls from visitors reporting the fall around 4 p.m. Responding rangers found the woman about 50 feet below the rim a quarter mile west of Mather Point and rappelled down to her. She was then put into a litter and brought to the rim using a rope haul system. She was then flown to Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.
