French Man Survives 75-Foot Fall at Grand Canyon

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Arizona -- A French tourist survived a 75-foot fall off of the Grand Canyon Thursday.

Witnesses say the 18-year-old man reportedly slipped Thursday afternoon while taking pictures near the rim. Park rangers received a report of a man falling over the edge of Mather Point, which is a short walk behind the South Rim's visitor center.

Paramedics rappelled down to the man's location, found him conscious and stabilized him so he could be airlifted out of the canyon and transported by ambulance to Flagstaff Medical Center.

Park officials say the man -- whose name and hometown have not been released -- was treated for wrist, ankle and neck injuries.
