Man survives 180-foot drop down Niagara Falls
BUFFALO, N.Y. - A man plunged at least 180 feet over Niagara Falls and survived, becoming only the fourth person known to have gone over without a safety device and live.

Niagara Parks Police say witnesses reported seeing the man climb over a railing at 10:20 a.m. Monday and "deliberately jump" into the Niagara River 20 to 30 feet above the Horseshoe Falls. Authorities believe it was a failed suicide attempt.

The man, believed to be in his early 40s, was rescued about two hours after he collapsed in waist-deep water near the rocky shore. A waiting helicopter flew him to a hospital for treatment of what police said were life-threatening injuries.

If I recall correctly, even though Horseshoe Falls has a higher drop, it has a nice deep bottom in some places, so all the survivors have gone over that side. The American Falls are shorter but you crash onto rocks over and over, and nobod has survived that.

The first was a 12-year-old who went over in a lifejacket when his boat capsized, I believe in the 1960s. I didn't realize there were also two more who survived before this guy.
