NIAGARA FALLS, ONT (WIVB) - It has only happened a few times in recorded history. Wednesday night, a man is alive after going over Niagara Falls.
The man went over Niagara Falls, then spent 45 minutes in the frigid waters of the Niagara and lived.
Niagara Parks Police Sergeant Chris Gallagher said, "It would appear that he did this of his own accord. The witness did see him climb the railing of his own accord and enter into the water above."
Just after 2:00 p.m., Toronto resident Konstantin Shatalov watched as the man went into the rapids and then over the Canadian Horshoe Falls.
Shatalov said, "I thought I imagined it, I actually looked around. There were a bunch of people and nobody seemed to notice. So, I was thinking, 'did I see it, was it for real?' So it took me about ten seconds, I called 9-1-1, and then other people ran from the top and saw the guy floating toward it so other people did see it."
