Who was the world's first to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel?
Before we get into the barrel, in
1829 Sam Patch, AKA The Yankee Leaper, leapt over Horseshoe Falls and is the
first recorded person to survive. He did not have a barrel.
On October 24 1901 Annie Edson Taylor, at the age of 63
(she claimed to be 43), became the world's first person to go over Niagara Falls
in a barrel. She walked away unscathed.
The first man to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel was
On July 25
1911 Bobby Leach went over the falls in a steel barrel and survived, although he
did break both his kneecaps.
