Grand Canyon officials say a woman from Florida fell to her death after stepping off a trail on Friday.

On Friday, hikers on the South Kaibab Trail called for help, saying a woman fell from Ooh Aah Point.

Park rangers searched and found 35-year-old Colleen Burns' body about 400 feet below.

Burns was visiting from Orlando, Florida and was taking photos with friends at the time she fell.

According to park officials, the incident is still under investigation.
