Kirk Jones, who survived historic Niagara Falls plunge, dies in return 14 years later
A man, Kirk R. Jones, 53, of Spring Hill, Florida, died while trying to survive going over Niagara Falls inside an inflatable ball after he made a successful jump during his first attempt, in October 2003, without any protection.
Jones was charged for unlawfully performing a stunt and mischief in a Canadian court.
Her stunt also stole the Guinness World Record from Nik, who had entered the record books in 2011 for hanging by his teeth250 feet (76 meters) above Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri.
Jones reportedly told his friend he would probably make a lot of money if he was able to do the stunt and survive. "I ask that no one ever try such a awful stunt again I understand what I did was wrong".
Erendira Wallenda and her husband come from a long-line of daredevils and circus performers, whose acts and record-setting stunts have astounded the world since the 1940s.
A 10-foot ball, one that could hold somebody inside, was discovered spinning in the rapids above the falls and after it went over the Maid of Mist tour boat recovered it.
Three others have survived unprotected plunges over the falls since Jones did it.
