There is new information about the Grapevine man who fell to his death at the Grand Canyon on Saturday morning.

Park rangers said John Anderson, 53, was visiting with family members when he fell about 350 feet from a scenic overlook.

The Grand Canyon Regional Communications Center received a report of a man falling off the rim near El Tovar Lodge about 8 a.m. Saturday. Rangers were able to locate the man and began CPR, but they say efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

Colleagues at Anderson's insurance office in Bedford were clearly shaken by news of his passing. He had worked there for nearly three decades.

The National Park Service and the medical examiner's office in Arizona are conducting an investigation.

They say it appears to have been an accident.
