On March 11, 2009, a Canadian in his mid-thirties went over the guardrail and waded into the freezing cold Niagara River. He was swept over the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. The force of the current tore his clothes off. He was spotted naked below Niagara Falls, in the dangerous churning river water. When the rescue team came into the gorge and approached where he was in the river, he waved them away. A helicopter was also called to the scene. 
  The current of the river eventually brought him close enough to the Canadian shore for the rescue squad to take hold of him.

On October 20th 2003, Kirk Raymond Jones became the first human in recorded history to go over the Horseshoe Falls wearing just his clothes and survive. Remarkably, he did this without any protective device or lifejacket. Roger Woodward, the 7 year old boy who accidentally went over Niagara Falls in 1961, was the first to survive the plunge without a capsule, but was wearing a life jacket.


On June 5, 1990 Jesse Sharp attempted to ride his polyurthane kayak over Niagara Falls. The 28 year old from Ocoee, Tennessee wasn't experienced whitewater kayaker. His 3. 6 m (12 ft), 16 kg (36 lb) kayak was named “Rapidman”. 
  Friends that accompanied Sharp to videotape the event said that he was planning it for years and it would be used to springboard a career in stunting. He didn't wear a helmet or life jacket. After challenging Niagara Falls, Sharp planned to continue down river, through the Great Gorge and over the class 6 Rapids.

On Wednesday September 27, 1989 Peter DeBernardi, 42 years old, from Niagara Falls, Ontario and Jeffrey Petkovich, 24 years old, from Ottawa, became the first to go over Niagara Falls together in the same barrel. It was a converted 12 foot tank weighing 300 lbs (136 kg), containing two hammocks, seat belts, plexi-glass windows and an interior video camera. 
  After taking the plunge, the barrel emerged near the Canadian shore where members of their crew snagged it. Once the hatch was opened, the two emerged relatively uninjured.

2 months before he succeeded in an attempt to go over Niagara Falls, David Munday tried on July 28, 1985, but was stopped by the Niagara Parks police. They stopped him in the river above the falls in a hydro power pool and fined him $503. They warned him that another attempt could come with 30 days in jail and $1000 fine. He commented,"What bothers me is that I'd never been arrested in my life. This is a whole new ballgame, being treated almost like a criminal."
  The police warning wasn't enough to deter him.
