A college student who overstepped a safety railing fell into Niagara Falls over the weekend and searchers looking for her body Monday found an unidentified male body instead.
The 19-year-old international student from Japan was presumed drowned after she plunged into the fast-flowing waters near the brink of Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of the falls at about 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, according to Canadian park police.
She had climbed over a railing and straddled it while enjoying the view with a friend, police said.
``The young woman stood up in what appeared to be an attempt to climb back over when she lost her balance and fell,'' reads a statement from Canadian park police.
No foul play is suspected in the incident, police said.
The woman's identity was withheld pending notification of her family in Japan.
