Body of Nevada Man Recovered After Fall at Grand Canyon.

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. The Grand Canyon Regional Communications Center received a report of a man who had fallen from the edge of the rim trail east of Mather Point about 4:20 p.m. This video shows the canyon’s beauty and heavy tourist traffic all at the same time. (Because the video is accelerated, the tourists look not only tiny but very busy.

The park gets that many in three typical days now. “A Minute Away” is a video series in which nothing much happens — except you see the world, and hear it, and get a respite from workaday life. We’ve covered Machu Picchu, Red Square, the Yucatan, the Alamo, an Alaskan float plane and the reading room of the New York Public Library, among other places.

The lawsuit filed in 2013 alleged that the Forest Service violated federal law in allowing the Canyon Mine to move forward and didn’t adequately consult with the Havasupai Tribe over a sacred site near Tusayan. But because of terrain, safety concerns and approaching darkness, recovery operations for the body were suspended until Friday morning, park officials said. Energy Fuels officials have said there’s no need to worry because a state permit requires that dust be monitored and controlled, no homes are nearby, and the dust isn’t highly radioactive.
