-Please. -Okay. Next, the deadly falls at the grand canyon. A tourist plunging to his death. The third tragic incident in a little more than a week. Here's ABC's Clayton Sandell. Reporter: It's a place of majestic beautt that can come with a deadly price. Wednesday morning, grand canyon national park officials say a 67-year-old man was killed after falling 400 feet from the canyon's south rim. He is the third person to die in the past eight days, including one person outside the park boundary, a man from Hong Kong taking a selfie near the skywalk, stumbling and fell to his death. Officials are still investigating a third fatality, a woman, her body found last week in a forest area above the rim. The grand canyon attracts more than 6 million visitors annually. Last year alone 17 people died at the park. Officials tnt with a new warning. Stay the heck away from the edge. It's long way down in the grand canyon. There's no need to be walking out to the very extreme edge and leaning over for that view directly straight down. Reporter: Of the 17 deaths in the grand canyon last year, officials say the vast majority are not falls. They are heart attacks. David? Clayton, thank you.
