Man swept over Niagara Falls. A man who voluntarily let himself be carried away by the imposing Niagara Falls was found safe and sound more than 50 meters lower, Canadian police said Wednesday.

He threw himself on the Canadian side of the Niagara River, on the border with the United States, surviving a fall of about 57 meters in height.
His identity was not disclosed by the police. . This is the only fourth person to survive an unprotected fall at this location, according to local media.
