    Canyon deaths: 685 and counting

    CYNDY COLE Sun Staff Reporter | Posted: Sunday, May 6, 2012 9:20 am

    A new edition of "Over the Edge: Death in the Grand Canyon" by Flagstaff authors Tom Myers and Michael Ghiglieri is out. Below is an update. Q: How many people have died there? A: About 685 over the years, the authors write, though that could be understated somewhat due to missing records and lack of recordkeeping in cases where someone was injured at the Canyon but died elsewhere, such as at a hospital.
