Niagara survivor deported

The week's news at a glance.

St. Catharines, Ontario

A Canadian judge released a Michigan man who plunged over Niagara Falls and survived last week, but ordered him to stay out of Canada until his next court appearance. Kirk Jones, 40, became the first person to go over the 180-foot Horseshoe Falls without safety devices and live to tell about it. He now faces up to $10,000 in fines for illegally performing a stunt. A friend said that Jones, unemployed and unmarried, plotted for weeks, hoping to “make some money” if he survived. Shocked tourists watched as he floated by on his back, smiling, and disappeared into the churning waterfall. “I was immediately enveloped by what seemed like tons of water,” Jones said.
