    Last Thursday a woman from Russia fell into the Canyon near Inspiration Point. This got me to wondering how many people die falling in to the canyon and if anyone has ever survived a fall. Anyone know?

    I remember back in about 2005 there was a guy who slipped in to the canyon near Artist’s Point, but he only fell in about 40 feet. Park crews were able to pull him out. I have no clue on how many people die falling in the canyon, but I don’t think it is very many. Over the past 20 years I can recall about 5-6. More than I’d like to see, but not a lot.
