Woman talked out of suicide attempt at brink of Horseshoe Falls

Canadian first responders talked a woman out of a suicide attempt at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls on Tuesday night.

Niagara Parks Police were called to the brink of the Horseshoe Falls at Table Rock House about 8 p.m. and when they arrived, found that the woman had climbed over a wall and was hanging precariously over the fast-flowing waters.

While she was about 15 feet from the brink of the falls, a member of the Niagara Parks Police began talking with the woman and after about 20 minutes convinced her away from the brink. She was taken to St. Catharines Hospital for a mental evaluation and treatment.
