A man dropped 180 feet over Niagara Falls on Monday, becoming one of only four people to survive an unprotected tumble over the falls. Witnesses report that the man may have deliberately climbed over a retaining wall and jumped into the water. The man has not been identified but appeared to be in his 30s or 40s. He was rescued on the Canadian side of the river and treated for hypothermia, broken ribs, a collapsed lung, and several gashes. The last person to survive the falls was a 30-year-old man in 2009.
