Orlando woman dies after fall from Grand Canyon trail

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. (AP) — A Florida woman has died after falling from a trail at Grand Canyon National Park.

Officials say 35-year-old Colleen Burns accidentally stepped off an edge at Ooh Aah Point on Friday, about a mile down the popular South Kaibab Trail.

Park rangers located her about 400 feet from where she had been standing.

Park officials say Burns had been with family hiking and taking photographs of the sunrise on the trail. They announced her death Monday.

Burns lived in Orlando and was on vacation with friends, according to WESH.
