While the canyon's beauty is undeniable, what perfect-shot-obsessed thrill seeking photographers fail to realize (or choose to overlook) is how dangerous it is. Although people don't die at the Grand Canyon every day, deaths are not uncommon, and are usually a result of photo ops gone awry. While some popular scenic outlooks are equipped with railings, others aren't. In October 2007, a 4-year-old girl fell 137 meters off the edge of the canyon just west of Mather Point, a popular overlook. It's easy to end up over stepping while trying to get the perfect photo. If you find yourself near an overlook without a rail, just pay attention to what you are doing, and do not follow in the footsteps of this photographer. While the authenticity of this stunt has been questioned, this photographer's actions were foolish nonetheless.
