Man dies in suspected suicide on Grand Canyon Skywalk

A man in his 30s died in an apparent suicide after jumping over the edge of a cliff on the Grand Canyon Skywalk in Arizona, local officials said.

The incident, which occurred last week when a 33-year-old man “crossed the edge” of the skywalk, was previously unreported, according to the Mojave County Sheriff’s Office.

“Two short-range technicians (rope specialists) traveled to the scene in a Kingman DPS Ranger helicopter and determined the man was dead,” the county search and rescue team said in a statement.

The statement did not provide details about the situation, but said those in need of help should call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

The Skywalk is a horseshoe-shaped glass bridge that stretches 70 feet (21 meters) over the rim of the Grand Canyon, which is nearly 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) high. This attraction is managed by the Hualapai Tribe and is located on tribal land.
