Visitors At Grand Canyon's Museum Collection Unknowingly Exposed To Radiation
Editor's Note: Due to a scheduling issue, this segment did not end up airing on Feb. 19 as planned.
If you traveled to the southern rim of the Grand Canyon between 2000 and June 2018 and stopped in the museum collection building there, you may want to consider seeing a doctor. That's because three paint buckets brimming with uranium ore were sitting in the basement, potentially exposing visitors to unsafe levels of radiation. Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Dennis Wagner (@azrover), an investigative reporter for The Arizona Republic, who broke the story Monday.
