Student dies over Niagara Falls - slips while posing for picture - video

A Japanese student is presumed to have died after she lost her balance and was swept over Niagara Falls.

The girl, aged 19, was straddling the rails with an umbrella and slipped above Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of Niagara.

Niagara Parks Police Chief Doug Kane said: "This is the first accident of its kind I can recall in my 35 years of policing."

No body has yet been found, so she has officially been recorded as missing.
