Man dies in Niagara Falls after surviving 2003 plunge

He was wearing only his clothes that day. -Canada border, drawn through the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario.

New York State Parks Police have recovered a body from Whirlpool State Park. The location is about 12 miles from the falls.

When asked if it was the same man who had survived the plunge 14 years ago, he said: 'That's the guy'.

It appears Jones had gone over the falls again, Nisbet said.

Parks Police received a call from a hiker reporting a body floating in the rapids of the Lower Niagara River just above the Whirlpool in Niagara Falls around 11 a.m. Friday.

Following the stunt, Erendira Wallenda told local reporters the conditions were "a little bit more windy" than she expected but said she was always confident that she could break her husband's Guinness record for the highest iron-jaw hang stunt.

On April 19th of this year, police believe Jones jumped over the American Falls, but this time he wasn't so lucky.

The inflatable ball was found empty at the base of the falls, where water gushes at an astonishing 150,000 gallons (567,811 liters) per second.

A body has been recovered from the Niagara Gorge. "So it went over the falls unmanned".

"I understand what I did was wrong", he said at the time. "'You'll never see an action in Niagara waters with my name written on it again". "And I was actually sucked inside, immediately, inside the curtain of the falls".

"It's generating the awareness, getting people here, people who wouldn't have come before", said Randy Bradt, the county legislature's majority leader.

"I heard a huge roar and felt a very big suction that literally sucked me under the water".

Kirk Jones, 53, (above in 2004) has died after plunging 180-feet into Niagara Falls inside a 10-foot inflatable ball. There's no evidence the book was ever published.

Wallenda comes from a family of stunt artists and world record chasers.
