NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. - A search resumed this morning for a woman presumed to have drowned after being swept over Niagara Falls.

Niagara Parks Police say two female students in their 20s from the Toronto area were visiting the falls around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

One of them sat on a block pillar, with her legs straddling a railing, then stood up and apparently lost her footing.

She fell into the river 24 metres upstream from the brink of the falls and the swift current then swept her over.

Police say the incident was captured on surveillance video and foul play is not suspected.

Early Sunday, a 27-year-old man survived an almost 10-metre fall down the Niagara Gorge.

The man, from London, Ont., had to be extricated from the gorge by fire officials and was sent to hospital with a broken leg and head trauma.

Police say he is going to be charged under the Niagara Parks Act of Ontario.
