A man miraculously survived after falling 188 feet into the Lower Niagara River of the Niagara Falls. The Niagara Parks Police on the Canadian side of the border said they were alerted about the incident early morning.

The Police, according to WGRZ, said the man was spotted climbing the retaining wall and then jumping into the river where he was seen being swept over the Horseshoe Falls, which is the largest of the three waterfalls that form the Niagara Falls. “After a search, he was located sitting on the rocks at the water’s edge below the Journey Behind the Falls observation platform,” it said.

Reports say, the police are not releasing the man’s name due to privacy laws. The police said the man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Over the years, several people have jumped into the Niagara Falls. According to Global News, the rapids above the Horseshoe Falls can go up to a speed of 40 kilometers an hour, sweeping in people and objects into a 57-meter deep fall.

A similar incident had occurred in July of 1960, when an American survived the Niagara Falls jump with only a life jacket on.
