Over The Falls: BAD IDEA
Even if you survive (and that’s no guarantee yet from what I understand, as this guy did suffer some head trauma), there’s a good reason going over Niagara Falls is a bad idea:
The man had clothes on when he entered the water, but was naked when he was rescued.
Rescuers believe the force of the falls stripped him of his clothing.
My emphasis. A few other reasons it’s dumb:
The river’s temperature was just above freezing, and ice floes could be seen in the area, Smith said.
The Horseshoe Falls is 167 feet high and the pool of water beneath it is equally as deep. On average, about 1.5 million gallons of water flow over Niagara Falls every second.
What an idiot.
