Surviving Niagara
As a seven year old, Roger Woodward was swept over the Niagara Falls, located between Canada and the United States. Fifty years on, he tells us what happened when he, his sister and a family friend were thrown into the river after a boating accident, not far from the brink. He went over, falling one-hundred-and-sixty two feet, but miraculously lived to tell the tale.
