    Default Plus One The Good Guys

    I was looking for something good to post as a 2000th post... and then realized I had just done that somewhere else (thanks Stayback LOL). Then this morning I found a good story to make with 2001.

    Firefighters rescue woman from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls

    Canadian Press Tuesday, February 24, 2004

    NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (AP) - A woman clinging to shore ice about 12 metres from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls was hoisted to safety by rescue workers Monday evening.

    Three Niagara Falls, Ont., firefighters went into the water trailing safety ropes and attached a harness to the woman. A ladder truck's 30-metre extension was poised over the river, and firefighters loaded her into a stretcher and hoisted her out.

    The woman was shivering violently and appeared unconscious as she was loaded into an ambulance, the Buffalo News reported. She had apparently been in the water for more than an hour, said Assistant Chief Barney Ruddell of the Niagara Falls Fire Department.

    The 53-year-old woman was taken to Niagara General Hospital. Her condition was not immediately available.

    A visitor told the newspaper he spotted the woman ``sitting on the ice with her feet in the water,'' he yelled to her, and she slid into the water, hanging onto the ice. He called 911.

    My first reaction says either it was a hell of a warm day in Niagara, or this was perhaps an aborted suicide attempt (although just plain stupid tourist is a close third).

    Either way, kudos to the local crew for getting her out.
