The photos certainly tell the story.

An elderly man apparently fell into the Niagara River while out fishing. A woman heard the man yelling for help and ran over with another man and a border patrol agent. They were able to pull him out of the water and save his life.

AMAZING job by all involved!!!  You are HEROES!


“Emily heard a man yelling for help at Blue water marina. Emily and Danny ran over there with a Border patrol agent and saved him. He was fishing and fell in, the gentleman was in his 80’s. Big shout out to Danny Stedman, Emily and the Border Patrol.”
