On Sunday tragedy struck Niagara Falls as a Japanese student studying in Toronto was swept over the falls and is now presumed dead.

Everyone is always trying to get a closer look at things, but this time getting a closer look turned deadly.  A 19 year old Japanese student studying in Toronto climbed up on the rails to get a better picture when she slipped and was taken down by the falls.

According to the Toronto Star, the girl is presumed dead and the authorities are working on getting that information to her parents in Japan.  They put up safety walls for a reason, and this is a big reminder as to why we need to obey those regulations.  Police are still searching for the girl, but chances of her survival are not good.
