    GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. - A Florida woman accidentally stepped off an edge at Grand Canyon National Park and plummeted hundreds of feet to her death.

    Officials say 35-year-old Colleen Burns of Orlando fell at Ooh Aah Point on Friday, about a mile down the popular South Kaibab Trail.

    Park rangers found her body about 400 feet from where she had been standing.

    Park officials say Burns had been with family hiking and taking photographs of the sunrise on the trail. They announced her death Monday.

    Burns died nearly two weeks after a California man fell to his death at the national park.

    According to multiple reports, Burns posted a photo of herself at the Grand Canyon to Instagram shortly before her fatal accident.

    :spit:

    Another fine citizen of Florida winning a Darwin Award! :woot:

    There's a girl I went to high school with that was posting shit all weekend about a tragedy to one of her Yelp co-workers. When I realized it was this, I couldn't help but to laugh just a little. These dumbasses are more concerned about taking pictures of themselves than being aware of their surroundings.

    I had to double check just now, because I couldnt believe it, but my friend is a Yelp manager in my city and was also posting all over FB about this as well. He didnt know her, but I guess she was very important Yelper or something.

    They should fill in the Grand Canyon. It's just too dangerous. #fallinglivesmatter.

    I hate heights and I often get mocked for not wanting to go anywhere near the edge of a cliff.

    How does one get so close to the edge of a cliff that they actually fall off? I would't be within a hundred feet of that thing.
