Did You Know Niagara Falls…

…has seen its fair share of daredevils?  In 1901, a foolhardy American schoolteacher named Annie Taylor became the first person to plunge over the Falls in a barrel.  The 63-year-old woman survived her dangerous stunt, and warned others not to follow in her reckless footsteps.  Unfortunately, her wise words have fallen on deaf ears.  Adrenaline junkies using barrels, rubber balls, jet-skis—even a kayak—continue to gamble with their lives in the quest to challenge Niagara Falls.
