The hazardous 2 1/2 hour nighttime rescue was hindered by high winds.

The 18-foot boat hit a reef and was adrift near Goat Island, between the American and Canadian side of the falls.

The boat kept drifting until officials at the nearby hydro-power plant lowered the level of the Niagara River.  That was able to ground the boat about a half-mile from the precipise of the falls.
