NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — History landed in Niagara Falls on Wednesday night.
Jumpers from Skydive the Falls pulled off their first ever jump over the Horseshoe Falls.
The Skydive Niagara event is a historic event. Jumpers launched out of a plane directly over the falls at 14,000 feet, safely landing in the parking lot of the Sheraton Hotel.
Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino celebrated their landing, telling 2 On Your Side, "When these kind of ideas come to City Hall I intend to put whatever effort I can into achieving that kind of entertainment and fun downtown. It's good for our hotels and it's good for our economy."
After the landing, celebrations continued on Old Falls Street.
