    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Experienced rescuers said it’s “amazing” a man survived going over Niagara Falls Monday morning — only the fourth time someone has taken the 54-metre plunge and lived.

    An unidentified man went over the Horseshoe Falls in what police say was an unsuccessful suicide attempt that unfolded in front of hundreds of Victoria Day tourists in Niagara Falls.

    Rescuers found him at the bottom of the Horseshoe Falls, on the rocks near the Journey Behind the Falls attraction.

    Niagara Parks Police and firefighters were called to the area at 10:20 a.m., after receiving unconfirmed reports from tourists that a man had gone over the falls.

    After interviewing witnesses and checking surveillance tape, police confirmed the man had gone into the water about six to 10 metres upriver from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls.
