A Canadian man suffered only non-life-threatening injuries on Tuesday after being swept over the Horseshoe Falls, according to CNN.
Police in Ontario, Canada, were responding to a call of a man in crisis at Horseshoe Falls when the man climbed over a retaining wall.
Reports revealed that the man was swept over the rim and fell 188 feet into the Lower Niagara River.
Officers found the man sitting on some rocks near the water before he was taken to a hospital.
According to the Niagara Parks website, the plunge pool is usually 100 feet deep. Horseshoe Falls is the largest of the three waterfalls that form Niagara Falls.
It‘s estimated that 25 people each year end their lives by going over the falls.
