Man Survives Plunge Over Niagara Falls [VIDEO]

A man who apparently tried to take his own life has survived a plunge over Niagara Falls. The 40-year-old unidentified man is apparently only the fourth person ever to take the plunge and live to tell about it.

Witnesses saw the man jump over a retaining wall above the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of the border and jump into the water. Niagara Parks Police found the man on the rocky shoreline of the lower Niagara River basin. The man suffered serious injuries, but is expected to survive. Rescue efforts took some two hours.

The man is now one of four people to survive a ride over the falls. Others include 7-year-old Roger Woodward who was sent over the falls when his uncle’s boat motor conked out in 1960.  In 2003, a Michigan man took the plunge and lived to tell about it and then again in 2009, an unidentified man survived a suicide attempt.
