State Park Police say UB student fell in river Saturday as search continues


Park Police are also still looking to recover the body of a woman who went over the Falls, near Prospect Point on Saturday night. Officers received a report of a woman in the rapids, just above the falls, around 9:40 p.m., but by the time they reached the area, the woman had gone over the brink.

“She was standing in the water and then just gave up and went over (the brink),” Moriarty said. 

Park Police said the incident was a suicide. 

“This was intentional, it was not an accident. We found a (suicide) note,” Moriarty said. 

Because the death was a suicide, Park Police are only identifying the victim as a 37-year-old local woman.
