Park dispatch received a report of a fatality on a private river trip on the Colorado River on Wednesday afternoon. According to the report, a member of the party had been hiking above Elves Chasm and had fallen to his death. Trip members had retrieved the body and were already back on the river. Rangers met the party at Blacktail, approximately three miles downriver from the chasm, where they conducted initial interviews and investigations and retrieved the body, which was flown via helicopter to the South Rim helibase. It was then transferred to the Coconino County medical examiner. The deceased has been identified as 52-year-old John Kynyk of Goodyear, Arizona.
