2018년 연말 오후에 이 일대를 여행하는 한 캘리포니아 출신의 여자아이가 약 200미터 낭떨어지에 추락해 사망한 사건이 일어났다고 합니다. 여기는 유타와 애리조나주의 경계선에 있는 말굽형포인트인 홀슈밴드 여행지입니다. 그랜드캐년은 아니고 콜로라도강이 침식작용으로 생긴 높은지대에 있는 포인트뷰 지역입니다.
2010년에 그리스여행객이 사망한 사건이 일어난 후 지금까지 어떠한 팬스장치도 없고 2018년도에 여자아이를 포함해 5월에는 남성이 추락해 사망했다고 아래기사에서 언급하고 있습니다. 안전팬스가 업어 피해야 할 여행지 인거 같습니다.
The body of a missing 14-year-old girl was found about 700 feet below the Horseshoe Bend overlook in northern Arizona on Monday, the Coconino County Sheriff's Office said.
The office said family members reported the girl missing about 4 p.m., about two hours after they last saw her at the overlook near Page.
A sheriff search and rescue team joined the Arizona Department of Public Safety's air rescue unit to search the area, the Sheriff's Office said.
A crew on the Department of Public Safety helicopter found the girl's body about 700 feet below the overlook, officials said.
Because it was getting dark, rescuers were not able to recover her body Monday evening. Rescuers returned Tuesday and recovered her body about 10 a.m.
The girl's body was taken to the Coconino County Medical Examiner's Office in Flagstaff, the Sheriff's Office said.
An initial investigation indicated the death was from an accidental fall, but the investigation is continuing and the Medical Examiner's Office will review the case, officials said.
This would not be the first time someone has fallen from the overlook. On May 6 a man fell about 800 feet off the overlook to his death. In 2010, a Greek tourist also fell to his death.
A viewing deck with safety rails opened June 19, providing tourists with a safer way to view the canyon. However, tourists can still explore the ledge freely.
