NIAGARA FALLS, On. (WIVB) — Two fishermen required rescue Wednesday afternoon after the Niagara River rose around them during a fishing expedition.
Niagara Falls Parks Police say the two men, who aren’t locals, were fishing in the Niagara River Gorge near the whirlpool when water rose around 12:30 p.m. The Niagara Falls Parks Police’ High Angle River Team rescued the men by pulling them into a chopper which was hovering just above the river.
Police say one man was injured after he fell on the rock, but he was released at the scene.
