The body of a central Iowa man has been recovered by rangers at Grand Canyon National Park.
Officials at the park learned late Tuesday afternoon that a park visitor had slipped and fallen off the rim of the canyon west of Mather Point. It’s estimated 30-year-old Gom Dang of Ankeny fell 280 feet.
Park rangers used a helicopter and a long line to recover the body on Wednesday.
