Orlando Serrano-Arzola, of Phoenix, Arizona, died on Sunday after falling from the rim overlooking the Colorado River at the Glen Canyon Dam near Page, Arizona, the National Park Service said in a statement.
The statement said Serrano-Arzola was taking pictures when he slipped and fell 100 feet, then slid an additional 150 feet. Officials said he showed no sign of life after the fall and had experienced extreme trauma.
While recovering his body, officials from the Coconino County Sheriff's Office, the National Park Service, the Page Police Department, and the US Bureau of Reclamation discovered human remains of another body at the base of the rim, according to the Salt Lake City Tribune.
