Remember that this whirlpool has a name....DEVIL'S HOLE. And there are eddies nearby the whirlpool that i've seen people jump into before....and those people are batshiate CRAZY. as stated above, that river is instant death. lifejackets aren't a sure thing, either, as they can get pulled off. they'll find charlie chan in lake ontario later this summer....

optikeye: I've seen it...all that river close to the falls looked like instant death to me, the water is very fast moving. Why someone would willingly jump in to swim is astounding.

Booze and BBQ? 22 isn't the brightest of ages.

I think booze and BBQ go together just fine. Again, the booze might not pair so well with the GIANT WHIRLPOOL....

/and that's why I always stay inside my cozy hobbit hole, with my cozy TV and my cozy Fark. Losers....

Niagara Falls?
Slowly I turn, step by step, inch by inch. I walked up to him, I smashed him like this, I hit him, I bopped him, I tore him to pieces, and then I knocked him down!

That thing routinely sucks down 150 ft fallen trees, grinds them up on the rocky bottom, and spits out nothing but wood chips.
I don't think they're recovering the body.

I'm going to assume alcohol was involved? I've been at that river, I've seen the whirlpools and that's something a normal sober person couldn't even be paid to swim in or even take one step in. As a previous poster said, it's instant death.

Authorities don't know the details, but it probably happened when a group of idiots decided to fark around with a GIANT WHIRLPOOL!
