Recalling ‘Niagara Miracle’ 50 years later

    No Comments

    From the Tonawanda News:

    Roger Woodward still remembers how bored and lonely he was that day, July 9, 1960, until a family friend invited him for a boat ride on the upper Niagara River.

    Seven years old then, he didn’t even know where he was going, but he was sure it would be a good time.

    Roger’s sister, Deanne, was celebrating her 17th birthday and James Honeycutt, 42, a family friend, thought the Woodward children would enjoy an outing in his 12-foot aluminum boat with the 71?2 horsepower motor.

    It would be a tension-filled day they’d never forget.
