The Japanese woman, 19, had lost her footing while climbing onto a railing near the river's edge at about 8.30pm on Sunday (0030 GMT on Monday, 8.30am Singapore time) and was swept over the Horseshoe Falls. 'The subject female was observed climbing over the railing and straddling it while looking out at the falls,' Inspector Paul Forcier said. 'She was holding an umbrella at the time.' 'The young woman stood up in what appeared to be an attempt to climb back over when she lost her balance and fell into the waters.' She is presumed drowned.
