Angel Falls (indigenous name: Parakupa-vena or Kerepakupai merú) is the world's highest waterfall at 979 m (3,212 ft), with a clear drop of 807 m (2,647 ft). It is located in the Canaima National Park, in the Gran Sabana region of Bolivar State, Venezuela at 5°58′03″N 62°32′08″W / 5.9675, -62.53556Coordinates: 5°58′03″N 62°32′08″W / 5.9675, -62.53556 . The height of the falls is so great that before getting anywhere near the ground, the water is vaporized by the strong winds and turned into mist. The base of the falls feeds into the Kerep river (alternately known as the Rio Gauya) which flows into the Churun River, a tributary of the Carrao River. In the indigenous Pemon language Angel Falls is called Kerepakupai merú meaning "waterfall of the deepest place". The falls are sometimes referred to as Churun-meru, an error, since that name corresponds to another waterfall in the Canaima National Park. Churun in the Pemon language means "thunder". Sir Walter Raleigh described what was possibly a tepuy and he is sometimes said to have discovered Angel Falls, but these claims are considered "far-fetched" [1]. They were sighted in 1912 by the Venezuelan explorer Ernesto Sanchez La Cruz, but he did not publicize his discovery. They were not known to the outside world until the American aviator James "Jimmie" Crawford Angel (b. 1899 d. 1956 bp. Springfield, MO)[2] flew over them on 16 November 1933 on a flight while he was searching for a valuable ore bed. Returning on 9 October 1937, Angel tried to land his Flamingo monoplane "El Rio Caroni" atop Auyan-tepui but the plane was damaged when the wheels sunk into the marshy ground and he and his three companions, including his wife Marie, were forced to descend the tepui on foot. It took them 11 days to make their way back to civilization but news of their adventure spread and the waterfall was named "Angel Falls" in his honour. Angel's planeAngel's plane remained on top of the tepuy for 33 years before being lifted out by helicopter. It was restored at the Aviation Museum in Maracay and now sits outdoors on the green in front of the airport at Ciudad Bolívar exposed to the elements. It is the original. The one visible on the top of the tepui is a replica. The first recorded human to reach the river that feeds the falls was the Latvian explorer Aleksandrs Laime, also known as Alejandro Laime to the native Pemon tribe. He made the ascent of Auyan-tepui in 1955. He also reached Angel's plane on the same trip, 18 years after the crash landing. He gave the name of the river after one of the most beautiful rivers in Latvia, the river Gauja. While the indigenous name of the falls is rarely used anymore, the Pemon given name of the river, Kerep, is still widely used. Laime also was the first to clear a trail that leads from the Churun river to the base of the falls. On the way, there is a viewpoint commonly used to capture the falls in photographs. It is named "Mirador Laime" ("Laime's Viewpoint" in Spanish) in his honor. This trail is used now mostly for tourists, to lead them from the Isla Raton camp to the small clearing. The official height of the falls was determined by a National Geographic Society survey carried out by American journalist Ruth Robertson in 1949.[3] A book by Luke Dickinson, Angels Four, chronicles the first successful climb up the face of Auyantepui to the top of the falls. Angel Falls is one of Venezuela's top tourist attractions but even today a trip to the falls is not a simple affair. The falls are located in an isolated jungle region of Venezuela and a flight from Caracas or Ciudad Bolívar is required to reach Canaima camp, the starting point for river trips to the base of the falls. It is also possible to purchase a package that includes an aerial flyby of the falls. The falls cannot be seen on cloudy days, and there is no guarantee visitors will see them. River trips generally take place from June to December, when the rivers are deep enough for the wooden curiaras used by the Pemon Indian guides. During the dry season (December to March) there is less water than is seen in some photos, but it is also more likely that the top will not be clouded.

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER Too many people were celebrating the Lakers 117-89 win against the Warriors to notice there was something very wrong in the stadium... “A young boy died after falling from a luxury suite at the Staples Center. He fell at least fifty feet, he was taken to USC medical center where he died.” (KGTV) Los Angeles’ KTLA says the news is still unfolding - and no one can seem to figure out why he fell in the first place. “Initial reports that the boy may have been taking pictures were incorrect. Witnesses said the boy was moving his arms and legs when he was placed onto a stretcher.” There have been conflicting reports on exactly how far the boy fell. The LA Times outlines the different possibilities... “It was unclear from which level of suites the boy fell. The top level would be about a 50-foot drop and the middle level about 25 feet. A fall from the lowest suite level would be about five feet to the highest rows of the lower bowl.” ...but Fox News examines a picture of a security guard, leading the anchor to believe it was most likely from the highest level. “Scary scene at last night's Lakers game. Look at this. A young kid fell 50 feet from a third level luxury suite. You can see his security guard checking out the spot where he did fall. It happened right after the game ended at the Staples Center.” The boy’s name has not been released.
