PAGE, Ariz. (AP) - A base-jumper killed in a fall in northern Arizona near the Grand Canyon has been identified as a 41-year-old Canadian physician.

The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office says the body of Dr. David Stather of Calgary, Alberta, was recovered Saturday after two fellow jumpers reported him missing after he made a second jump late Friday.

The Sheriff’s Office says Stather was wearing a wing suit and that his body was found on a canyon ledge near the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers.

Detective Pat Barr says the jumpers who reported Stather missing had been waiting for him at the bottom.

Barr says the other jumpers saw what appeared to be Stather’s wing suit about 2,000 feet below the cliff after they climbed to the top.
