The incident has been prominent in the news lately; TV this morning showed a picture from their Instagram account showing them perched on the rim of the Grand Canyon and commenting about the potential danger.

Be very careful when playing around near drop zones; even a very short fall, with a bad landing, can be serious.

Unfortunately, bodies recoveries of this sort are rather routine at both Grand Canyon and Yosemite.

Suicide with collateral damage? Not saying thatís the case here, but two peeps falling off a cliff looks suspicious.

Be very careful when going to high points with someone despondent or suicidal; itís a survival thing.
