A Plunge over the Falls (sample unit)
The date was July 9, 1960. Seven-year old Roger Woodward climbed into a fishing boat, safely upriver from the turbulent waters of the Niagara River, the very same waters that rush over the mighty Falls and crash into the foamy whirlpool below. And then the tiny boat’s engine failed. Read the story that brought chills to all who witnessed it – a tale that can only be described as miraculous.
As an added bonus, read about some of the more breathtaking examples of those daredevils who have, with varying degrees of success, attempted to face down the power of Niagara Falls.
