Grand Canyon hiker falls to her death while trying to take a photo

An Arizona woman was hiking in the Grand Canyon when she tried to snap a photo and fell to her death, park officials said.

Maria A. Salgado Lopez, 59, of Scottsdale, plummeted around 100 feet Friday from the edge of Mather Point, according to the Grand Canyon Regional Communications Center.

She had been hiking off-trail and taking snapshots with family when she accidentally stepped off the point’s edge, officials said.

The National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner’s Office have launched an investigation into her death.
