Man dies swinging from Utah rock arch

A person swings from the Corona Arch near Moab, Utah, in 2012. A 22-year-old man was killed Sunday trying to swing through the opening of the 110-foot, 33-meter-tall, sandstone arch in a stunt made so popular on YouTube that state authorities recently banned the daredevil activity by commercial outfitters.
