A young female employee reportedly got killed at Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park on Thursday. Reports revealed that it was the 18-year-old victim’s first day at work who, accidentally plunged to her death, hundreds of feet down the Grand Canyon edge.

Although the rescuers had located her body Thursday but as the light faded quickly, the rescue mission was abandoned. The teams returned on Friday again and around noon local time; the body was successfully recovered, with the help of a short-haul helicopter.

The tragic incident occurred in evening hours on Thursday at around 4:45 p.m. along the popular edge of Grand Canyon where the unidentified woman and three other people were hiking. Starting her first day with a private concessions firm, the woman took the accompanying hikers off the trail.

They were at the Inspiration Point when the accident occurred, said the Yellowstone National Park Service. All of a sudden, the loose rock gave way underneath the teenager’s feet, said park authorities in a statement. Her body was later spotted by the rescue teams; lying some 400 feet below northern canyon rim; completely motionless.

It was concluded by the Yellowstone Rangers’ rescue teams immediately that chances of the young woman’s survival were minimal; she appeared to have sustained severe, non-survivable injuries.
