ROCHESTER, N.Y. – A man survived after being swept over the Canadian Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls on Tuesday morning, according to Niagara Parks Police.

The incident occurred about 4 a.m. at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls. Park police officers witnessed the man climb a retaining wall, jump into the river and observed him being swept over the falls, said Paul Forcier, chief of the Niagara Parks Police Service.

The man, who was not identified by police, was found sitting on rocks near the Journey Behind the Falls observation platform after a search of the lower river, Forcier said in a news release.

The man was rescued from the Niagara River and was taken to an area hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Forcier said.
