Grand Canyon, Ariz. –At approximately 5 pm on Saturday, January 28, the Grand Canyon Regional Communications Center received a call reporting a man who had fallen from the rim near the South Kaibab trailhead. Responding park rangers located the body of an 18 year old male; however, steep terrain, snow and ice, and impending darkness limited rangers’ access until Sunday. On Sunday, rangers were short-hauled by helicopter to the location and recovered the body of Luis Gonzales of San Diego, CA.
