Man Goes over Niagara Falls and survives!

Niagara Falls jumper is 30-year-old Canadian

NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario (AP) — Police say a man who survived a plunge over Niagara Falls then fought off rescue attempts is a 30-year-old Canadian who was suicidal.

Niagara Parks Police Sgt. Chris Gallagher says the man who allowed himself to be swept over the Horseshoe Falls Wednesday was in stable condition Thursday at a hospital in Ontario. The western Ontario resident is expected to make a full recovery.

Police are not releasing his name or discussing his reasons for jumping into the Niagara River.

He is only the third person known to have survived going over Niagara Falls without protection. The last was Kirk Jones in 2003.
“It meant everything,” Mitchell said of last season. “It was the first time in my life I was a champion. It was the first time I understood football was a family. Right now I want to be the best defensive lineman I can be.” - Khaliff Mithcell, TC 2012

It would be even amazing if someone dare go over the American Falls side. I don't think anybody has survived, with or without a barrel, on that side.

So what you are saying is that if he was truly suicidal, he would attempt the American side? Otherwise your 'enthusiasm' of amazement seems a little over the top IMO.

It's too bad that this young Japanese woman was not as lucky.

Another survivor. This man was very lucky indeed.

NIAGARA FALLS (AP) — A man has survived a plunge of at least 180 feet over Niagara Falls in an apparent suicide attempt.

He is only the third person known to have lived after going over the falls without a safety device. Authorities did not identify him.

Niagara Parks Police say witnesses reported seeing the man climb over a railing over the Horseshoe Falls on Monday and "deliberately jump" into the Niagara River. He surfaced in the lower Niagara River basin near an observation platform and managed to make it to shore on his own.

A Niagara Falls, Ontario, fire department official said the man was conscious. He apppeared to have chest injuries, and was taken to a hospital, where a spokeswoman said the man was critically injured but was expected to survive.
