Two park rangers threw the man a rope that they secured to a tree and a sign. A park rescue team then pulled the man back to the rim using ropes and pulleys. Officials say the man was extremely lucky that he stopped in the crevice because he was at the top of a 200-foot drop.

The man came away with a hip injury.
