An apparent suicidal man was grabbed by Canadian emergency personnel Sunday night as he stood in the waters above the brink of the Horseshoe Falls.
Niagara Parks Police Service officials report that about 6:30 p.m Sunday they were alerted to a man standing waist-high in the waters of the upper Niagara River about 150 to 200 feet from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls. He was holding on to a fallen tree branch.
