I remember my dad wanted to prove to my mom that the Grand Canyon was safe when we went there so he asked a tour guide “how long has it been since someone fell in” expecting them to say something like a year. Instead they replied something like “oh someone just fell in 2 weeks ago”

@No subscribers you cant keep stupid people from doing stupid things in nature. Unless you fill in the whole canyon with concrete and replace it with a TV screen showing how it used to look and someone will still find a way to die there.

I'm extremely afraid of heights. I've been to the Grand Canyon. I could barely get close to the railing. It was absolutely incredible.

I wonder about the girl whose father died trying to play a prank on her. It’s been almost 30 years and she’d be in her 40s now. Losing her dad that way was probably incredibly traumatic.

It is scary, but so beautiful that no one should skip it. Just stay away from edges; an amazing number of people risk their lives to sit on sloped sandstone, dangling their lives high above the floor of the canyon. Pure stupidity.

I was going to reply something similar. I’ve never had a reaction to or would consider myself scared of heights but the size of the canyon really boggles the mind. There were a few times I stared out too far or long and felt woozy. It’s like your mind can’t comprehend the vastness and freaks out a bit. I had to just kind of tell my mind it wasn’t real or it was just a mural a few times I was doing the hike. Super amazing experience that I think everyone should see but definitely dangerous if you don’t keep your wits about you. Not to mention the fact that if you’re hiking in the sun and heat you can over exert yourself and get dizzy or faint from dehydration.

My sister in law came very close to falling in off the path at the South Rim about 10 years ago. We were hiking down and others were hiking up, we shifted over and she rolled her ankle, lost her balance, and started to fall down a steep embankment. An older gentleman walking up leaped to grab her and caught her ankle. His heroic action and a small V-shaped branch saved her life. We screamed from behind her as we watched in horror, loud enough for it to echo throughout the canyon and all the hiking traffic stopped... all the horses stopped. We clambered to pull her and the gentleman back onto the path. They both were in shock over what had just happened. It didn’t actually hit her until later in the day what happened. We had planned to hike for a couple more hours, but decided not to push our luck and hiked back to our car. I think about that man often and hope that karma has been gracious to him.

I almost fell into the Grand Canyon when I was 15. My family and I were moving from Riverside California to Pensacola FL. On our way we stopped by the canyon. I forget the name of the town where we stayed the night but I do remember it wasn't snowing in town but when we got to the canyon rim the snow was about ankle deep aroundthe sidewalks but it came up past my knees quik as I walked out toward the edge to get a better view. I remember walking toward a small tree that sat what looked like on the edge. Right as I got up to the tree my footing slipped under the snow. It was as if time sat still as I was falling. I just knew it was my time. Then I reached toward the tree and held on as my feet were looking for their footing again. I pulled myself up and quickly went back to safety. Only my sister's seen what happened and I don't think they knew how scary that actually was. when I told my parents it was like they didn't believe me. That was 32 years ago.Telling the story made the memories come back like it was yesterday. I can honestly say I almost fell into the Grand Canyon

What that father did to his daughter is completely unfair. She’ll live with that for the rest of her life. It might manifest as guilt, or just total indescribable trauma. Such a dangerous, childish joke took what was apparently a fun loving father from his daughter in such a horrific way. I don’t know why, but that story resonated with me in a way that most stories about unfortunate deaths don’t come close to.

I was one of those kids at one time. I was actually seriously injured. We were all playing on the edge, looking over, jumping from cliff to cliff, column to column. Ironically, I wasn't hurt near the edge. On the way back to the car, I absolutely whacked my head on one of the many Juniper trees around the area. Cracked my skull, lost over a pint of blood, and needed 10 staples, and then 12 stitches once those staples didn't work. Fun family vacation tho. Watch out for those damn trees if you go!

When my mom was in college, she took a trip to the Grand Canyon with a group of her friends. One friend stepped out to take a picture, and the ground crumbled from underneath him and he fell. Another friend saw it happen and tried to save him by grabbing him, but he ended up falling, too. While the first friend died from the fall, the second one actually survived because he had landed on top of the first friend. Needless to say, he had some pretty intense survivor’s guilt afterward. 🙁

When I visited the canyon, I bought a book in the gift shop called "Over The Edge" which chronicled every known case of people falling, jumping, being pushed etc to their deaths. It's a tremendous read, it's amazing just how many people ended up as wildlife snacks at the bottom of the canyon.

When I was there, I was aghast at the number of young children, some as young as 5 y/o, who were running along unfenced portions of the rim just inches from the edge. On that same trip and at Bryce Nat Park, a father sat his son, no more that 4 or 5 y/o, on a stone wall then backed up several feet to take a photo. The kid started to wobble and a man nearby rushed to grabbed the child before he fell backwards off the wall and down into the canyon. Call Child Services!!

Despite living in Arizona for almost 2 decades, I only visited the Grand Canyon once. I was about 8 and absolutely terrified, especially because my cousins of the same age were running around and climbing on railings. I felt very validated when a ranger joined me in scolding them. He appreciated how cautious and concerned for safety I was haha. 20 years later and I think Im finally ready to give it another shot next time I visit AZ

It’s not too out there to fear the railing will fail. On ships, we’re told not to leaning on any of the railings because of the possibility that it won’t support your weight and you’ll go toppling into the ocean. Not a fun way to go. I 100% understand that fear and, honestly, probably wouldn’t get closer than 50 ft to the railing.

I never got close to the edge. I was already dizzy from ten feet away. A young couple standing at the edge asked me if I could take their photo. I begged them to take a step or two closer to me before I took their picture. The wind was strong that day. People who aren’t afraid of heights don’t realize how often they risk their lives.

we were there on a windy day with our young daughters. It was terrifying! Bad enough watching foolish people getting too close to the edge while exploring. The winds were gusting. Watched teenagers defy their mom while finding seating to watch the sunset. She screamed at them and I didn't blame her! The kids were oblivious that it was a cliff, not a theater seat!

no, it's not what they think won't kill them that actually kills them it's something else. Sitting for too long on rock cliff edge can block blood circulation and every so slightly numb some muscles. When standing the brain is not used to hips and leg muscle being slightly off for a few seconds and that's were loss of balance can occur. It's a physiological cause, that they never foresee. It's nothing like magic dizziness. That's why you leave a safety margin.

When I went to the Grand Canyon and the place I went didn’t have any railing or guards, it was absolutely one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen but since there was no safety measures present, there was a man just sitting on the edge, like hes feet were over like a 500ft+ drop. I also saw something like that on a mountain in Colorado were we were near the very top and there was a steep cliff and some one LOWERED THEIR SELFS OVER THE EDGE and stood on a tiny rock below the edge so he hanging of the edge and he did it all for PICTURES! we saw him get back up but please people don’t risk your life and some pictures.

I went to the Grand Canyon when I was nine with my dad, my dad's friend and his son. In the evening, we decided to take a short hike down part of a trail past Hermit's Rest. I was wearing flat bottomed shoes that were totally unsuited for hiking. While my dad, his friend and his friend's son were talking further down the trail, I got bored and started to kick some rocks. I slipped and fell and started to slide down the slope. The trail switched back underneath itself, but after that there was a sharp drop off of at least a few hundred feet. My friend's son noticed that I was sliding down the slope, told my dad and an my dad ran over and stopped me just before the edge. Had he not noticed or had my dad missed, I probably wouldn't be here writing this comment today. I just hope that none of the rocks I foolishly kicked hit anyone further down the trail.

@Gr8tBlueHeron Yeah, you can't ever forget that any step you take could be your last while still enjoying the experience - it's a careful balance of precaution and awareness as well as having fun and enjoying yourself. I've had enough experiences with less harmful experiences that I know by now that if something can happen it could happen to me and to take extra care. To think that you're exempt of death is careless and a big mistake in itself. Sadly a lot of young or experienced people forget that anything can happen to anyone and play with the fire, thinking it won't burn them.
Gr8tBlueHeron

It's pretty simple, really. When you have limited experience with extreme depth perception it overloads your brain, so to speak. You get dizzy in the moments it's taking your body to try to calibrate it's place in space. Unfortunately we don't always get a second chance to learn from the experience. An easy way to see this is to try to balance on a painted line on the road. Most people can easily walk the line without error or wobble. Moving that line into a 2x4 18" off the ground and suddenly people lose their balance and wobble all over the place.

I remember when my mom, brother and I went to the Grand Canyon. My brother and I wanted I photo sitting on the edge (we were like 10 so we didn’t understand how stupid the people doing this actually were) my mother found an area that had a big “chip” on it. There was actually a huge flat area before the drop off of the cliff but if you angled it right, it looked like you were right on the edge. Idk why people don’t just do this instead of actually sitting on the edge

I remember seeing someone almost fall into the canyon when I went for a field trip once. It was winter so everything was covered in snow and ice, and this one guy was laying on his stomach a bit ahead of the railing so that he could get a nicer shot of the canyon I assume. Because of the ice, he started to slide closer towards the edge, but thankfully someone grabbed his foot before he slid all the way past the edge.

Upon seeing it I was surprised at the lack of railings around the perimeter, except a few spots. But I quickly realized there’s not enough metal and labor in the world to rail the whole perimeter, there’s just way too much length to it. And I came to appreciate it’s a rare case where people are still expected to depend on their common sense. You have to be a lunatic to shuffle right up to the edge, you’re missing your basic survival instinct.

@Panic ​ Not true at all. I LOVE dangling my feet over large drops, but I also love being alive, so I always crawl to and from the edge. I feel completely safe and the rush and views you get are 100% worth the extremely small chance of falling. I honestly have no idea how I would even fall unless someone pushed me or I did something extremely stupid while sitting on the edge. I very much understand the dangers of vertigo.

I went there in 2019 and almost fell in. I was standing a good, responsible distance away from the edge at a viewing point with no railing, or it had one that didn’t entirely cover it. I don’t remember which. I was overcome with that sense of disorientation he mentions and I fell down after losing my balance. But because I was a good 10 feet from the edge I realized what was happening and was able to stop myself by skidding on the ground with my foot and hands before tumbling down. Nobody saw it and I just felt so grateful I’d been far inland enough to notice what was happening before it was too late. The other crazy thing that happened there was I saw a 5-person family, all three kids being younger than 10, all posing for a photo behind a railing, back to the edge. After taking the photo which scared me to even look at their positioning, they let the kids play on the railing as if it were playground equipment. They swung on it and climbed it. I felt so sickly especially after what happened to me. It was an interesting day.

As someone with a very rational fear of heights, my trip to the Grand Canyon was a great catharsis. While I never walked right on the edge, I had a great appreciation of the shear depth and never had I experienced the "call of the void" stronger than my trip there. It's definitely a place that pictures don't do justice.

When my husband and I went to the Grand Canyon few years ago, someone almost fell to their death right in front of us! It was during snowy season so it’s already slippery as is. And this one guy decided to throw snowballs while standing at the edge of the canyon that didn’t have railing! He slipped and fell super close to the edge and instead of learning his lesson he still stood there after near death! 🤦🏼‍♀️

Only been to the amazing Grand Canyon once the only surprising thing about this video is that there aren't far more fatalities due to this. Visited the Skywalk which has an open area up next to the canyon before you get into the building. The amount of people that were directly on the edge and some even climbing down to lower ledges on the edge, completely blew my mind.

I remember climbing Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia years before the Mabo land rights decision which stopped people from climbing it out of respect for indigenous Australians. There was a sign at the bottom stating how many people had died climbing it and how it happened as in being blown by wind. I remember my dad saying that if he’d seen the sign beforehand he would never had let myself or my brother climb with him.

First time I ever went to the Grand Canyon (I’m a Brit), we saw a family standing by the edge with one guy balancing on the edge with one leg and posing with his hands; it was terrifying and he was so wobbly and I honestly thought I was gonna witness a fall that day

Lesson Learned: If you're going to sit on the edge of any steep surface, especially one with a slope toward the edge, do not attempt to stand from it. Pull yourself backwards until your legs/feet are completely beyond the edge, then turn over and crawl away, and stand slowly, allowing your sense of balance to return. One thing most people don't understand is how much your sense of balance can betray you on or near a steep drop. "Losing your balance" or experiencing "vertigo" is a matter of the mind and body sending false reports to each other. To test your sense of balance, go on a swing (as at a playground). If you get nauseous while swinging, your sense of balance is poor. However, you can improve it at any time. The best thing to do -- true! -- is go on a swing every day (for as long as you can tolerate it, obviously) for about a week or two. Then do so every few days to maintain it. Children love to swing because it helps them develop and maintain their sense of balance. As adults we stop and we shouldn't.

No offense to you but I think your theory on testing your sense of balance is wrong. I don't get nauseous while swinging, but I know for damn sure that my sense of balance sucks. I'm just saying my experience, but I still don't think your theory is correct.

I was on top of Half Dome many years ago- looking over that edge reveals the valley floor, 4,000 feet below. Despite my efforts in hopes to take a picture over the edge, it was so intimidating that I could only manage to crawl close and crawl back- it was raw fear, but I no longer worry about it. It's a healthy fear-

Me and my family went to The Grand Canyon in 2019 for the first time ever. Whilst we were there, an old lady fell over the edge. She was apparently holding onto the edge, but couldn't hold on long enough for help. That whole day, even before this incident I had a weird feeling of something bad happening. I remember going past the rescue teams trying to recover her body.

I don’t think some people realize how dangerous the Grand Canyon can be, until they actually have a chance to see it themselves. For example, the temperature rockets in the canyon. On the south rim it can be 25 degrees warmer at the bottom than the top, meaning when it’s around 80 degrees as you depart on your hike it can be over 105 by the time you get down. It’s scary shite, and anything can happen if you take that risk.

It's feels odd, being from Sydney, where, about 90 minutes down the coast, there is the blowhole at Kiama. I've been there quite a few times as a kid and similarly, people have died showing off, trying to get pictures. The last time I went, it only had a five foot, climbable fence around it. I always had it drilled into me by my parents to be careful and respect the dangers. I've also heard too many stories of people not doing so. The comparison seems so stark, when hearing stories like these.

I visited the GC in 1998 and it was and is one of the greatest wonders of the world and the view …. Oh my ! Fabulous. BUT I was shocked that the viewing point where our guide took us, was literally a death trap . It had a single , flimsy looking, corroded metal 3ft wide and 5ft high , D ring grab rail ! That was it! I recall standing on the land side (obv) of it and realising that it wasn’t even high enough to stop me toppling over it if one of the notorious gusts of wind from light aircraft came near. I returned again in 2003 and this time it was totally different with many more strategically positioned guard rails available across a wide expanse. I returned in 2015 by which time the ‘skywalk’ had been built and that was a hell of an amazing experience but there were some idiots doing the usual and spoiling it for others and showing off. I suppose you will always get them. I stayed at a lodge on the rim for the night to enable me to watch the sunrise over the Canyon- it was breathtaking. I’m surprised to hear the figure quoted as around 50 deaths though as in this clip, I thought it to be much higher . There were two deaths only a couple of days prior to our arrival there in 1998 and a death the day before we went again in 2003 and the tour guides alluded to around one a month on average????

Eventually, the fallen Legate crawled out of the northern edge of the Canyon and began his journey home. How he survived was sheer will power.

I'm always amazed by how some people just... assume that a national park couldn't possibly be dangerous, and they can do whatever the fuck they want. I still vividly remember being at a waterfall viewing point in Jasper national park, and watching in horror as a large group of young adults on the other side of the river ignore warning signs, hop the fence, and then take turns posing at the edge of the cliff for pictures, jumping up and down on the rock, and generally fucking around. And I'm pretty sure they knew that the cliff edge they were jumping on was actually a large overhang without any support, as the river had long since carved out a wide swath of rock under the shelf. I swear I spent like twenty minutes just watching them, knowing there was no way in hell they'd hear me over the waterfall if I went over there and yelled at them from the trail. I honestly thought I was going to see someone die that day, especially when I watched a little bit of rock break loose from the bottom of the overhang as they jumped on it together. Still can't believe they survived.

My grandad, mom, and I were on vacation in South Dakota back in August, 2021, and we went to the Badlands about 1/3rd into our trip. The entire time I was nervous about being in an area where you couldn't tell if past the crest of the hill was just the other side of the hill or a 1000 foot drop, and I hardly went into the rock-path-area near the entrance, although I did do some cool parkour in the areas with no big drops, and while doing that I saw some cool abandoned hats about 10 feet down. I thought about getting them, but there was nothing else for scale to tell how far away and how far down they were, and I couldn't tell how steep the angle was that they were on.

I visited the southern rim of the Grand Canyon a few years ago. I was astounded at the number of people standing with the tip of their toes over the edge of a drop 500+ ft straight down and leaning over to look down. Not only was it windy enough to possibly make someone lose their balance, there were so many people doing it someone could easily bump into someone else on accident and send them flying over .The entire time security guards were yelling at the to step back from the canyons edge, but no one would listen. Idk if people think it's "cool" to put yourself in mortal danger like that? But it looked pretty stupid from where I was standing lol. Some of those rocks are so smooth and slippery near the edge of the canyon, it blows my mind how anyone would decide to get that close.

I've been twice. Once, when I was a child. I barely remember that time. Then, once in 2007. And that time I saw some idiot almost die. As has already been pointed out, there were numerous signs saying to stay inside the rails. There was a chipmunk hopping around in a bush about 10 feet on the other side of the rail. Some dingleberry with a big camera decided he just had to get closer for a picture. As soon as he went over the rail, a couple of people immediately warned him of the danger. He ignored them and moved to the bush. Of course, the critter avoided him and moved. The guy took 2 steps while staring at the chipmunk, and his right foot slipped over the edge. His wife/girlfriend screamed. He lunged for the bush and got it. He was darn lucky that bush was well rooted. He pulled himself up. The expensive camera was busted, not him though. Lucky

This is why fear is essential it's what keeps you grounded no pun intended, you must always have a sense of the potential dangers. Without fear I don't think we'd have made it as far as a civilization

I've always been afraid of the Grand Canyon, even though I've never been there. Just the thought of possibly falling in. I still want to see it one day, but probably never anywhere without guard rails and never past them.

Warning do not fall to your death at the Grand Canyon

I almost fell off the ledge of somewhere near a shop in the summer of 2021. There wasn't anyone there, just my mom, dad, and older brother. I don't remember which rim I was on, but there weren't any rails and just rocks. As I made my way towards the ledge, a strong gust of wind knocked me over near the edge of the unprotected cliff. I still vaguely remember that experience and I'm scared to death to visit the Grand Canyon anytime soon.

One of the scariest moments of my life was almost falling off the Grand Canyon. I slipped on some pebbles on the trail down and slid on my back. My legs were dangling off the edge and two people grabbed me and pulled me back up. A very near-death experience

Did this give you phobias of hiking, or heights after that?

Similar thing happened to me, although not nearly as close of a call. My brother and I were walking, and my brother said “oh it’s a bit muddy”. Me, not giving a single care about my shoes, stepped in it - it was not mud, it was slush. So my dumb ass flies through the gap in the Grand Canyon fence. It really isn’t as hard as people make it sound 😅

Last year, my father and I hiked from the North Rim to the South Rim over a course of three days. Arguably, the most challenging hike of our lives, mainly due to the fact that hiking up a steep wall takes a lot of energy out of you (my calves were sore for at least a week after we returned home). The Grand Canyon is a place I have deep respect for in terms of following its natural laws. I've seen a lot of people there taking unnecessary risks while there. It's not uncommon to see people sitting beyond railings, or whatnot, and while the view is indeed breathtaking, there are far better ways of experiencing it. I even saw video of someone nearly falling to their death after taking a step back for a photo. They were lucky to have caught themselves. It's like the number one rule there: never walk backwards. That all said, I think there's a far greater danger for tourists in hiking too far into the canyon, or underestimating the extreme heat of the canyon itself. The rangers my father and I ran into were always more concerned about making sure we had enough salty foods or water, and that we were getting enough rest, and urging us not to hike between the hours of 10-4 than they were of us taking a clumsy fatal step. Heat exhaustion is definitely the biggest threat. But yeah, having lost my footing a few times, due to loose dirt or whatnot, you quickly learn how to catch yourself, and you absolutely NEVER walk backwards. The area is absolutely gorgeous and I hope one day to return, even if I don't do the Rim to Rim hike again.

Yes, they have “in your face” signs at every trailhead reminding people that walking down is not so strenuous bit you have to come back up. Also dehydration warnings. It’s a desert environment and you dehydrate easily. They have a recommended amount of water to carry as a minimum.

what a place to go though a? absolutely beautiful! I've been there a few times and I've hung my feet off the edge I've been very very careful, very aware that one slip leads to death. if I do fall to my death in the Grand canyon I would prefer they leave my body there and let the scavengers and nature take care of the rest ☮️❤️🎵🌍🤗🏁

When I went to the Grand Canyon, I did feel dizzy. I winded up crawling to a place I felt safer. But I never climbed over any railings. I saw many others that did. 😢
