MAN SURVIVES FALL INTO NIAGARA FALLS


Niagara Falls emergency workers rescue a man who plunged over the falls and survived in an apparent suicide attempt.
NIAGARA FALL, New York- A man has survived a fall of more than 50 metres into the raging waters of Niagara Falls.
The man, who police say was attempting to take his own life, is only the third person to survive such a fall without a safety device.
Hundreds watched the dramatic rescue as Canadian firefighters and a policeman worked to save the man in his 40s who went over the Horseshoe Falls on Monday around 10:30 a.m.
  • Niagara Falls Fire Platoon Chief Mark Diamond said, "A sergeant had found his way down to the man and was sitting with him and had gotten him out of the water and was sitting with him on the rocks near the water's edge."
  • First responders risked their own lives to save the man, extending an aerial ladder over the falls and repelling down to the man with a basket. The rescue took around two hours.
  • After he swam to safety, firefighters had to winch their way down the side of a cliff to bring him to safety. He remains in a serious condition in hospital.
