Man, 28, jumps to death at Grand Canyon Skywalk, officials say
The Grand Canyon Skywalk, which opened in 2007, is a horseshoe-shaped glass walkway that hovers roughly 70 feet above the canyon, overlooking the Colorado River. The vertical drop from the Skywalk is between 500 and 800 feet.
In March, a Chinese tourist fell to his death as he was trying to take a photo near the Skywalk. He stumbled, falling into the canyon.
It’s unclear how many people have committed suicide at the Grand Canyon, but park spokesperson Vanessa Ceja-Cervantes said about 12 people die at the canyon each year.
