Man Survives Fall Over Niagara Falls [THE BIG DUMMY FILES]

Every time I go to Niagara Falls I think about the stupid people who try to jump into the falls.  I think TLC said it best don’t go chasing waterfalls.  A man plunged at least 180 feet over Niagara Falls and survived.  They have not released THE BIG DUMMIES name yet.  He is said to be a man in his 40′s.  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. He was rescued two hours after he collapsed on shore.  They shouldn’t even waste time or money rescuing people who go on this dare devil mission.

Instead of taking him to the hospital they should’ve took him to jail.  I can’t think of any good reason to actually attempt to jump into Niagara Falls. This doesn’t seem like a thrill or remotely fun.  Even if this was a suicide attempt this is a painful way to take your own life.  The speed of the water alone is enough to severely hurt you before killing you.

There have been three survivors so far to go over Niagara Falls and live without a safety device, this man makes the third.  In October 2003, Kirk Jones, an out-of-work auto parts salesman from Michigan survived his plunge over the falls and, in 1960, 7-year-old Roger Woodward was swept over the falls wearing a life jacket and survived.  Welcome this BIG DUMMY to the big dummy files.
