18-Year-Old Dies in 400-Foot Fall in Yellowstone
Woman died in an accidental fall near Inspiration Point
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. – The National Park Service says an 18-year-old woman has died in an accidental fall near Inspiration Point in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

The Park Service says the accident occurred Thursday afternoon.

The victim's name was not immediately released, pending notification of relatives. However, the Park Service says she was a Yellowstone concession employee on her first day in the park.

She was hiking a canyon trail with three other acquaintances when she ventured off trail onto a loose rock promontory, which gave way underneath her.

Her body was retrieved Friday about 400 feet down the canyon wall.

@natashavc @TaraAriano @allyzay Oh no, I've been thinking it's a room for all your types of mustards. Recalibrating my ideas now.
