Arizona Man Dies in Fall at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
A 23-year-old Arizona man was killed when he fell about 70 feet while hiking in a canyon at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
NRA officials identified the victim as Porter Dixon, of Mesa, Arizona. They said rangers were called Wednesday afternoon by the man's family, which had been camping on a houseboat, when he did not return from a hike in a side canyon off Warm Creek Bay.
Within hours of launching an air and ground search the man's body was spotted at the base of a cliff, the NRA reported.
