Note: I was in Niagara Falls on Saturday and had meant to be there (I’ve been there the last two years), but just didn’t make it.
From the Welland Tribune:
A large crowd of people gathered around Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! museum Saturday afternoon to watch — many with their hands covering their mouths, some half covering their eyes — as a Toronto woman swallowed a 24-inch stainless-steel sword.
“It was incredible. I’ve never seen anything like that before,” said 20-year-old Krysta Cwynar, who was visiting from Buffalo. “I’ve seen pretty crazy things in my life, but nothing like that.
“I was kind of scared that she was going to get hurt. That was a big sword. I’m just baffled right now.”
