Niagara Falls

Daredevils Have Gone Barrel Down Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

In 1901, Annie Edson Taylor, a 63-year-old teacher, was the first to take this spectacular voyage down the surging waters of Niagara Falls in a self-designed barrel constructed of iron and oak and padded with a mattress. While she survived, such a trip is not recommended for obvious safety reasons, and individuals who try a reckless act over Niagara Falls face a hefty fine as well as the expense of rescue. Over a dozen additional individuals have gone over the falls since Taylor.
