Woman Falls to Death at Yellowstone

Laramie, WY – Officials at Yellowstone National Park say a woman died Saturday after she lost her footing and fell 500 feet to her death in a canyon.
The 52-year-old woman was visiting the park with her husband and two children.
Park officials said her husband flagged down a passing motorist, who called 911 after the accident Saturday at an overlook along the Yellowstone River.
The woman is apparently from Michigan.
It was the second fatal accident in Yellowstone this year. In February, a woman was killed in a snowmobile accident.
