    I was there stuck on top trying to come down the canyon road, both lanes were blocked I have the full video of the rescue on my camcorder it was a very disturbing scene. The man was being airlifted and chills ran down my spine thinking how miraculouse it was that he was alive with at minimum a 200 foot drop into the canyon.
