A man who was hiking in the Grand Canyon was found dead over the weekend.

The National Park Service says they received reports of an unresponsive hiker on Bright Angel Trail, just east of the Pipe Creek River Resthouse, at 6:45 a.m. on June 16.

"All attempts by bystanders and National Park Service (NPS) personnel to resuscitate the individual were unsuccessful," officials said.
