Niagara park police here are attempting to identify one of two bodies recovered Wednesday within 15 minutes of each other.
Police identified one of the bodies as that of a 41-year-old St. Catharines man but declined to release his name at the request of the family. Police said the man, about 6 feet tall with a mustache, went over the Horseshoe Falls more than a week ago. His body was discovered near the Maid of the Mist dock.
The body of a white male, 40 or older and 5 feet, 7 inches tall, washed ashore near the whirlpool at 10:50 a.m. Police said the body had been in the river for a considerable time.
