Re: Woman swept over Niagara falls- yikes
Authorities say they've recovered the body of a woman who appeared to be swimming in the Niagara River before being swept over the brink of Niagara Falls. Officials say tourists on the Canadian side of the river reported seeing the woman in the water above the falls around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Witnesses on the Maid of the Mist tour boat told WIVB-TV in Buffalo that they saw her go over the falls. When a rescue boat reached her in the river below, she was dead.

Damn that's a hell of a drop. If she came over the American side she would of bounced off many huge rocks at the bottom. The CDN side is much more forgiving and she would bettered her chance for survival. I guess one must do their homework first.... ;)

That must have hurt...The power of those falls is unreal. All you have to do is stand near the fence on the American side and you can feel that awesome power coming up through the ground beneath you. Poor Lady, she should have known better.

I think about the moment when she knew the falls were her fate and swimming away was of no use...to see your death coming like that. Terrifying.

Umm, there is no swimming at Niagara Falls, she indeed had
a death wish or it was accidental/homicide.

I always wanted my ashes to go over the Falls, or someone
to push me over if I reach 100 years old. lolsign

Police blotter info from Pendleton

NIAGARA FALLS — ONTARIO

Woman swept over falls
[link to niagara-gazette.com]
Niagara Regional Police and Niagara Parks police are looking into an incident that saw a woman swept over the Horseshoe Falls Tuesday afternoon. Police said they received reports, around 4:30 p.m., that tourists had spotted a woman in the rapids above the Falls in the area of Dufferin Islands. A short time later, the woman was observed by numerous tourists going over the Horseshoe Falls. The woman’s body was later recovered from the lower river. The identity of the woman has not yet been determined.

Re: Woman swept over Niagara falls- yikes
This was a little too realistic for tourists.

"numerous tourists saw the woman in the rapids above the Falls in the area of Dufferin Islands around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday and called police. Witnesses on the Maid of the Mist tell News 4 rescuers were on the scene as the woman neared the Falls and were forced to watch helplessly as she plummeted over them. " [link to www.wivb.com]

There you go, LOL. I told my kids that if I ever get to the point where I'm being fed applesauce and someone has to change my diaper, they have my permission to put me out of my misery. I'll mention Niagra . LOL

Hey, One Star Schmoe, what's up with that? This is a unique story with tingles and shudders any person could relate to. Not a particularly long lasting nor impactful one, but a momentary yikes for sure. Are you always this fast on the draw ? LOL

Re: Woman swept over Niagara falls- yikes
It is believed that this is a woman who works at the same place that I do - though I did not know her. If it is the same woman, she leaves behind three children - who lost their father (her ex-husband) only a week ago.

Some of your remarks are incredibly insensitive and uncalled for. How dare you! You don't know all of the facts.

If it was an intentional death, then I'm sorry that it had to come to that; that this poor lady could find no other solution. I've been told that this lady (if it was, in fact her) was a wonderful mother and woman. She was very much loved by her co-workers.

My heart goes out to her children who, unfortunately, lost both of their parents (the youngest is only 17) in such a short time of eachother. Not even time to grieve one parent and now they must grieve the loss of both. It is VERY sad.
