A Japanese student, who was 19 years old, drowned from the railing while viewing niagara falls (in North America) on Sunday at 8:30 pm with her friends. She fell about 25 meters below in the current of water on the Canadian side of the Niagara river.

While searching for the body of the girl (as it presumed that the girl is dead on Sunday evening), searchers have found a male body at the base of the falls, on Monday at 8:10 am, near area called as whirlpool.

Police is working on both of these cases. On Monday, police were working with Japanese consulate to notify the family of the girl. Names have not been released until notification.

Another incident occurred on early Sunday morning and a 27 year old London, Ont., man fell into the Niagara river gorge and fractured his leg. But the man and his friend, who went for his help, were taken out by the fire department. It was one of the two other incidents that occurred within 24 hours of the accident.

The water speed at the Falls is almost 40 kmph. According to Niagara Parks Police Chief Douglas Kane, approximately 11 million people attend Niagara falls every year.

Seven deaths at the falls including people have been considered to be as accidents since 1903 and only one survived in 1960. There are almost 20-25 cases of suicide every year that happen at the falls.
