A man survived the 180-foot plunge into Niagara Falls on Monday, becoming only the fourth person to live through the jump without any protective gear. The man, who has not been identified and is believed to be around 40 years old, reportedly climbed over a retaining wall above the Canadian Horeshoe Falls before jumping into the Niagara River and being swept into the falls. He was eventually pulled to safety on the Canadian side of the river and has sustained several serious injuries, including a collapsed lung and broken bones. Authorities said the man willingly jumped into the water, but they did not say whether they believed it was a suicide attempt; officials said they see one to two suicide attempts per week.
