    It doesn't sound hopeful, but I'll continue to hope he's okay.

    Wow, this is the first I'd ever heard of them. Looked them up on Google and yes, it is nearly impossible to escape from them. How scary! Glad to have this information. Thanks.

    RIP Michael

    Davila was with a group of friends when he climbed over an observation deck railing near the falls about 11:15 a.m. to have his photograph taken. He slipped on a wet rock and fell into the roaring waterfall.
