As members were hiking out from filming a new slide show, and at base we were starting to put some of the gear used in the show away, a hiker from the canyon stopped and stated that a youth was stranded at the first falls. We immediately radioed the team in the field to hike down as fast as possible, and then John Dew and I started from the bottom. Upon reaching the falls we found that a friend had helped the boy off of the small ledge he was stuck on. We called members, to slow down their pace, and in turn hiked on out ourselves.
