    Meanwhile, three empty tour boats were spotted down the river, but all 16 occupants were located on a ledge off the river bank, said Maureen Oltrogge, spokeswoman for Grand Canyon National Park. All 16 were airlifted from the scene and transported to the shelter.

    All I can say is. "wow". Being from my part of the world, I cannot imagine what many of these people are going through! I hope all stay safe and no harm comes to anyone.
