I hope he is okay.

At the same time I have seen a person on occasion go up there and get too close to the falls so on and so forth.

I took this pic a bit back and I was just left scratching my head:

I am not necessarily saying this current disappearance is a case of someone exerting a lack of common sense. All too many time though I have seen people doing things that have me experiencing a wth moment.

Rick,

  I am guilty of standing too close to clifs, waterfalls, etc in the past.

Of course at the time I felt as though I was exercising adequate caution; as I have gotten older (and hopefuly wiser) I have come to the realization that there is a reason why we have the term "accident" (no-brainer...right?).  Sometimes things just go wrong....sometimes real quick.

Hopefully this gentleman will be found safe & sound, maybe wiser.

Thanks for posting the link Rick!

Mike G.
