“She kept going backwards. I looked out and I saw how close she was to the edge and I said, ‘don’t take another step back,’ and she did. My stomach went up into my chest.” –Erin Koford 

Gnarly close call caught on camera at the Grand Canyon where a mother and daughter from Texas were snapping photos near a ledge when the daughter backed up to get a full body shot of her mom and lost her footing.
