UPDATE | Body recovered from gorge

Floral Clock-SkyF

A body has been recovered from a vehicle that crashed into the Niagara Gorge over the weekend.

Police were called to the Niagara River Parkway, north of the Floral Clock, just before noon Saturday where they found a heavily damaged vehicle at the bottom of the gorge, close to the Sir Adam Beck Generating Station.

Because of the area, crews had to rappell into the gorge to gain access.

With the help of Ontario Power Generation staff, police were able to recover the body.

No word yet on the identity of the victim.

Witnesses are asked to call police at 905-688-4111 ext. 2200.
